The Barbados Public Workers Co-operative Credit Union was established in 1968, as a Savings Society. On 6th May1970 the Barbados Civil Service Association Credit Union Limited (as they were then known) was registered as a Trade Union.
In 1977, in order to broaden its bond of membership, the name was changed to Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union Limited (BPWCCUL). This allowed for the inclusion of former civil servants, staff of statutory boards, husbands, wives and children of members as well as employees of the National Union of Public Workers to become members.
Today membership in Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union is open to all Barbadians, resident and non-resident.
In an unprecedented move in 2010 the Credit Union acquired a Mortgage and Finance Company; Capita Financial Services Inc
