The Irish Bank Officials' Association union is rebranding after almost 100 years in business.

The organisation, which has around 4,000 members in Northern Ireland, is reinventing itself as the Financial Services Union (FSU).

And the group says that the restructure is part of an overall wider campaign by the union to "extend its appeal beyond the traditional banking sector to include the growing financial services industry".

Speaking ahead of the union's annual conference in Dublin today, general secretary Larry Broderick said: "For 98 years, bank officials across these islands have been well served by the IBOA, securing dramatic improvements in pay and conditions by revolutionising the relationship between employees and employers.

"Today, however, it is the banking sector itself which has been revolutionised by globalisation, technology and the growing needs of our members."
