C&WJ Co-operative Credit Union first open its door in April 1961, one year before Jamaica gained independence from Britain in August 1962. The company at that time was named JTC Employees Co-operative Credit Union which was bonded to serve the employees of the then Jamaica Telephone Company Limited (JTC).
In 1995 Jamaica Telephone Company (JTC) was renamed to Telecommunications of Jamaica (TOJ) and the credit union was also renamed TOJ Employees Co-operative Credit Union. There was another name change to C&WJ Employees Co-operative Credit Union in 1999 when TOJ was renamed to Cable & Wireless of Jamaica.
In order to serve the wider community and to extend reach to having members outside of the telecommunications industry, the credit union’s name was changed to Communities & Other Workers of Jamaica Co-operative Credit Union in 2006, and in 2014, it was changed to Communities & Workers of Jamaica Co-operative Credit Union Ltd.
