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.
