Newbridge Credit Union leads the way? Should people be concerned about their credit unions? It appears so if results from Newbridge Credit Union are indicative of others to come this year. And it seems credit union bad debt problems are getting far worse if recent media reports and strident warnings from the Central Bank are anything to go by. Typically less than 3% of members bother attending their credit union AGM. If they believe the financial stablity and future of their credit union is important then maybe more should attend and start asking really hard questions of boards and management's past performance and ability to deal with the outcome of what in many cases was quite reckless lending during the boom.
