Con Edison alone has over 15,000 retirees who owe their success in part to the unions which enabled them to earn a retirement in the first place.


UWUA locals are urged to create retiree chapters and to encourage officers, stewards, activists, and other members who are about to retire to become active in their local retiree chapters. In those places where new retiree chapters are created, local unions and retirees will work together to form organizing committees and to build worker strength. The UWUA and retiree chapters will also work together to build state Alliance for Retired Americans groups that are backed by the AFL-CIO in order to protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and to build a sustainable retirement system for all working Americans that guarantees economic security.
