Retirement does not mean your involvement with the union must end! Retirees coming out of the labor movement possess a rich knowledge and understanding of the vital role unions play. We are important to building our union and the labor movement as a whole. Retired union members bring energy, enthusiasm, time and experience to all SEIU 668 activities.
You may be eager to become involved in union activities and can provide a wealth of information and expertise, as many retirees are. Whether it is initiating letter-writing campaigns, communicating with elected officials, getting out the vote, participating in voter registration drives, organizing new worksites, fighting for healthcare reform or other issues important to working families, retirees are a valuable yet largely untapped resource within the union and community.
Stemming from the busy 2012 election cycle came a renewed interest to make the SEIU 668 Retiree Committee a more viable presence. Our goal is to tap into this largely unused resource and actively engage more retired members to serve as a link to alliances and programs that benefit retirees in their everyday lives. SEIU 668 wants to keep retirees involved in the labor movement by utilizing their life experiences and union activism.
To help us reach that goal, the International assigned SEIU Retiree Coordinator Lisa Tilson to assist locals in Pennsylvania. Learn more about SEIU’s National Retiree Program. The contact person for this is Lisa Tilson and she can be reached at 561-213-6561 and/or Lisa.Tilson@seiu.org.
We have updated the Retiree Committee web page to include all committee representatives with their contact information and chapter/geographic information. We have also included links to useful programs and alliances to benefit retirees.
