Credit Union News

The RMT Credit Union Office is closed for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19. We are in the process of setting up working from home and appreciate that this is a very difficult time for all involved. It is a very busy time at the moment. The main thing that needs to be changed and will be helpful  is that any withdrawals or loans PLEASE DO NOT send forms via the post. Please send them by email for the time being until we return back to the office. We will be picking up emails from home and processing payments from there so the Credit Union will still function as usual as best as possible. Your assistance is appreciated at this time. Thank you all and please stay safe. We will get through this. 

Anyone sending withdrawals or loans !!! PLEASE SEND TO US VIA EMAIL !!! If you send via post it could take weeks to receive as our post is being redirected. SO your payments will take longer to process! Please remember we are still working from home until further notice ! Please have patience and be wary of the difficulties at this time due to COVID-19. 


The RMT Credit Union is looking for a experienced credit control person to help in Credit Union volunteering. If this is of interest to anyone please contact us immediately.

Please note the new date for Monthly Cycle collection of Direct Debits will be on the 15th of every month.
