Credit unions get tough

CREDIT unions are stepping up their approach to pursue those who don't make repayments on their loans.

The localised banking network are now using the court route more frequently. There were 89 judgments registered by credit unions last month compared with just 43 in the same month last year. The total amount of judgments registered jumped from €544,366 in July 2010 to €1,174,385 last month.
