Retiree Chair Lawrence Funck with President Tom Herman

As a SEIU 668 retired member, we encourage you to stay with us!  Although you are retired, the struggle continues! There is proposed legislation at both the state and federal level to erode our pensions and benefits that we fought so hard to gain.  The SEIU 668 Retiree Committee is fighting hard to retain pensions, health care, social security and Medicare benefits.  We need your help!  We need every SEIU 668 retired member to stay active and continue fighting for our livelihood.

To help us in our struggle, the International has assigned Retiree Coordinator Lisa Tilson to help us  move forward in our fight.

As the SEIU 668 Retiree Committee Chair, I am inviting all retirees and future retirees to become union members.  Please join us!  Become a retired SEIU 668 member to continue participating and having an impact on your union.  Print, fill out and mail in the following retiree application, or contact headquarters to request an application at 1-800-932-0368.  Dues for retired members are only $4 per month!
