Second Special General Meeting 12.30 p.m. 19 July 2018 PCS Headquarters, Clapham Junction.

The members at the first Special General Meeting on 4 July voted unanimously for the merger with 1st Class Credit Union.
PCS Credit Union Secretary Es Chorlton, speaking on behalf of the Board, said that all the negotiating aims had been met and although there were a few minor items to tidy up, there were no issues that would stand in the way of a merger. He said that the new merged credit union was not second best but would provide a better service for members and a better return for savers while keeping and extending the links with PCS.
The Directors report under latest news on the PCS Credit Union website gives a summary of why the Board is recommending the merger along with other information.
The Regulator requires us to have two Special General Meetings to go ahead with the merger and the second one will be at 12.30 on 19 July at PCS Headquarters.
The Board invites all members to come to the meeting to take part in this important vote
