The SEIU Retiree Advisory Council promotes lifelong unionism…

SEIU retirees possess a rich history within the labor movement and a passionate understanding of the vital role unions play within our society. They have played an integral role in helping to build this union and the union movement as a whole. SEIU retirees volunteer as Member Organizers - helping SEIU organize new worksites, Member Political Organizers (MPO’s) – helping us win electoral campaigns, and volunteers – working hard to fight for healthcare reform and other issues important to working families.

Accomplishments of the Council
The SEIU Retiree Advisory Council made significant progress in the 2007-2009 years. It created a best practices guide (.pdf) for building and strengthening SEIU retiree chapters committed to creating annual strategic plans for their retiree programs with buy-in from their local leadership to help grown and strengthen chapters. They also committed to mentoring fellow start up chapters. In 2010 we focused on developing a retiree vision for SEIU retirees on a national level.
