As Council members, we may be retired but we remain active in the life of our union. Because of the steady erosion in the retirement security of most Americans, we believe it's essential that we actively participate in the struggle to protect our benefits. Through the Council, CWA retirees have input into key retiree programs as they are shaped through contract negotiations and or legislation.

The Retired Members' Council works to safeguard and enhance our retirement in many ways:

  • We monitor company pension and health care policies.
  • We track national legislation affecting CWA retired members
  • We monitor federal, state and local politicans and legislation in support of our goals and interests.
  • We represent retired members' concerns and issues with CWA bargaining councils before and during contract negotiations
