The power of organized retirees is not to be underestimated and the Council of Retired Members knows that. With the formation of the council in 2014, retirees have a greater voice than ever in our state federation. The council advocates for retirees, monitors issues of import to retirees, and makes policy recommendations to CFT governance bodies concerning retirement issues. It also assists local unions in organizing new retiree chapters.
Every retired member is eligible to remain a member for life, for free. See our helpful FAQ for union members readying for retirement.
