In 1964, we gathered for the first time in the union halls of Operating Engineers Local #3 with one simple goal: to provide union members a better alternative to banks. Members needed a financial institution that understood the challenges of the construction trades’ long hours and seasonal work. For over 50 years, that institution has been OE Federal Credit Union.

Built on a foundation of union pride, OE Federal is the country’s largest labor-based credit union. We understand the unique needs of union workers and their families in ways the big banks can’t. With more than 100,000 members nationwide across six states and 125 union groups, we’re here to help because we’re union family, and our family deserves the best.

We believe a credit union is more than a financial institution. We are a community — a family — and our members are our brothers and sisters. Your family deserves the best, and that’s what OE Federal can offer. We understand your needs and your lifestyle, and we’ll make sure you get what you’re looking for: affordable financial products, outstanding personal service, and a lifelong partnership with people who care. Our products and services have expanded, our assets have increased, and our membership has grown, but one thing has stayed the same—our goal to provide the best possible service for our OE Federal family.

We have been and always will be Union Proud.
