A few short years ago, CSEA took action to create a Retiree Unit just as
other major labor organizations had done many years earlier.
TODAY, CSEA's retirees
"make a difference" for both active and retired members of CSEA in many ways.
Our retirees did much to make CSEA the strong organization it is today while
they were active employees themselves. Now they are not only looked to for
assistance with important issues that affect all members, they are helping to
pave the way for future retirees.
• To work with the Pre-Retirement
Resource Committee and local chapters to assist active employees who are
preparing for retirement
• To work with local CSEA chapters and
the Association to provide volunteers for preparing mail-outs,
participating in voter registration drives, school board and other
political campaigns; telephoning and electing labor friendly candidates
that support public education.
• To provide strong support for the
passage of any legislation that will assist classified employees,
retirement and public education, and to provide opposition to
legislation that will have an adverse affect.
