It’s everyone’s hope in retirement to be secure and worry-free. Unfortunately, this is not the case these days. We are facing extremely tough times both economically and politically and there is much uncertainty and anxiety about what the future holds for working people.
We encourage all retirees to maintain your ties with the union and your colleagues by joining the Retired Teachers Chapter (RTC) of the BTU. Your monthly dues deduction ($5.00 for teachers and $2.50 for paras) will usually start a month after we receive your application for membership. Our membership year runs from September 1 through August 31.
You can receive your information packet with an application for membership by calling 617-288-2000 any Wednesday or Thursday between 10 AM and 2 PM. You must fill out an application to become a member. It is not automatic simply because you are retired.
We encourage you to keep informed and stay involved. Check out the links below.
