Viewers may recall that on July 3rd a group of about 30 members of the La Inmaculada Credit Union staged a peaceful demonstration demanding answers about the institution’s affairs. The action came after the suspension of former General Manager, Yolanda Gomez. And while that action prompted a prepared statement from the Board of Directors stating that an internal investigation is on-going and they cannot disclose anything else, members are keeping the pressure on today since no answers have been given. Today, we found out from member Estella Torres that they are moving unto a new approach, by garnering signatures on Friday.

“Tenemos que reunir mil firmas para mandar la carta a La Inmaculada Credit Union, a según los abogados de nosotros nos dijo que teníamos que tener diez mil peo como tenemos un Credit Union Act dice que tenemos que tener mil que es el 10% y entonces con eso nosotros podemos empezar a trabajar.”

“Let’s say you get the one thousand signatures, how would that help?”


ESTELLA TORRES – Member, LICU


“Entonces va hacer que el abogado haga una carta con las firmas y se lo va a mandar al Board of Directors y ese va hacer el próximo paso.”

“Siempre mantienen la misma posición que quieren un AGM?”


ESTELLA TORRES – Member, LICU


“Queremos el AGM y queremos todo el reportaje de ellos porque ya tiene tres meses y no sabemos nada y necesitamos saber porque no hemos conseguido los dividends y entonces ahorita conseguimos permiso en el parque central para el Viernes desde las ocho y media hasta las cuatro de la tarde vamos a estar haya tomando firmas de los miembros del Credit Union y les pedimos que no se les olvide traer sus Social Securyt Card.”       

The group will set up at the Central Park from 8:30am to 4:00pm on Friday.
