Pipeliners Local Union 798 has recently been approved to offer our members Credit Union Membership through Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union. Once you open an account (with as little as $5.00), you will have access to 5,000 shared locations nationwide to perform a variety of basic transactions, including check cashing. The Credit Union also offers 55,000 Allpoint ATM’s that are available nationwide without any additional fees. We hope this added benefit will be helpful for all of our members working away from home! The Credit Union personnel are aware of the frustrations our members face when needing to cash checks.

We hope our members will participate and help build a “banking relationship” so rarely found today.
