BETHLEHEM, Penn. – Members of tiny Dixie Cup Employees FCU, serving employees of the iconic disposal cup manufacturer, voted to merge their $1.2 million credit union into $480 million First Commonwealth FCU in nearby Lehigh Valley.

The tiny credit union, which served employees of the Dixie Consumer Products plant in Forks Township, Penn., had a total of 489 members.

“We’re pleased to welcome these members and to extend services that were not available to them before,” said Jo Ann Broderick, president of First Commonwealth. “Now they can turn to their credit union not only for simple savings and loans, but for all of their everyday financial needs.”
