Welcome to the Retiree Center

Mission Statement

The purpose of a CWA Retiree Chapter is to bring retirees into an organization for the betterment of themselves and their union.  Chapters provide retirees with a vehicle to protect and fight for issues that affect us as retirees.  Through the CWA Retiree Chapters our members are able to speak out with a united voice. 

The goal of the District 7 Retiree Committee is to improve communication with our retirees and grow the membership of CWA.  To accomplish this we will work with locals to create Retiree Chapters, keep our retirees better informed on issues that affect us as seniors, disseminate information with respect to economic, social, political and all matters affecting the lives and welfare of our members.

Tell Congress to Stop Fast Track!

(From the CWA National Site)

CWA activists aren't stopping their campaign to stop "fast track" authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. They're continuing to rally outside their lawmakers' district offices, write letters to the editor and call Congress to express their opposition.

Meanwhile, talks continue. Singapore will host the next meeting of TPP chief negotiators from Feb. 17 to 21. That'll be followed by a ministerial meeting of the 12 countries involved in the TPP from Feb. 22 to 25. The TPP is expected to be finalized during these upcoming meetings.

Last week, a big crowd urged Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) to stand with the residents of Queens -- not Wall Street -- by opposing fast track (also known as Trade Promotion Authority) for the TPP. On Monday, he announced, "I have had concerns about aspects of Trade Promotion Authority legislation in the past. I respect the efforts to improve TPA and believe the changes being sought are important, but I still have concerns and will oppose the Camp legislation if it comes before the House for a vote."

CWA Minnesota State Council President Mona Meyer speaks at a demonstration outside Sen. Amy Klobuchar's offices in Minneapolis. She said, "We are not against trade, we are against free trade. Under the TPP more American jobs would be offshored. Internet freedom would be a joke. Developing countries would lose access to life-saving medicines. Unsafe foods and products would pour into our country. And that's just the tip of the iceberg."

About 25 protesters rallied outside Maryland Democrat Rep. John Delaney's Gaithersburg office on Friday to urge him to vote against reauthorizing fast track.

Senator Baucus and Representative Camp are asking Congress to approve fast track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership even though members of Congress have not seen the agreement which is over 1,000 pages long.
