In this important election year, as retirees we must continue to support our union. Public schools, our colleagues in the classroom and our benefits are under attack at the state and national level. We must ensure that our voices are heard, and our votes are counted.

Now is the time to re-commit. The Agency Fee may be dead, but our union must have the resources needed to continue to speak for us and voice our concerns. We need to protect our retirees, colleagues and public schools that keep alive the dreams and growth of the American middle class.
