Credit union is taking “GE” out of its name

The General Electric Co. has put the Erie General Electric Federal Credit Union on notice: It wants its name back.
And the credit union, which has used the GE name for the past 76 years, is ready to oblige.

The request from GE attorneys, asking the credit union to strip the words “General Electric” from its name came in January. But the credit union, which has 36,000 members and six branches, had been working for more than a year and a half to lay the groundwork for a name change.

The new name is set to be announced Friday at the credit union’s annual meeting, being held this year at the Ambassador Conference Center.
