    On Saturday February 24, 2018 the members of the Local 142 Credit Union voted to merge with the Air Force Federal Credit Union by a overwhelming majority. On Friday April 27, 2018 the 142 Credit Union will be closed for the Battle of Flowers Parade, on Monday April 30, 2018 it will re-open as the Air Force Federal Credit Union. I believe it will be a smooth transition period and the AFFCU will offer more services and convenience to all our members and their families.

      Starting on January 1, 2018 Journeyman U.A. Dues will be going up to $35.00 a month, all Apprentices U.A. Dues will be going up to $31.00 a month.
