Purpose Statement

When CSEA members retire from their jobs in schools, the Retiree Unit provides an opportunity to stay involved and continue to advocate for classified employees and working families. The Retiree Unit Executive Board is the elected leadership of CSEA’s Retiree Unit, working closely with local chapters and the Association to coordinate political and election-related efforts, assisting the Pre-Retirement Resource Committee in its service to members who are readying for retirement, and mobilizing to support legislation that benefits classified employees, retirement and public education.


Chairman's Message

 

 What Time Is It?

May 31st 2018

 

1. May is Older Americans Month.  We should all be advocating for these issues. It’s time to bring back the Gray Panthers.  Some of the swamp creatures in Washington want to cut Medicare & Social Security to pay for Trump’s Tax Cut for the rich.  We have got to keep fighting to protect Social Security and Medicare. We need to beef up the Older Americans Act. We need to increase voter registration and vote-by-mail programs

2.  Social Security is not going under.  Social Security has a $ 2.9 trillion dollar surplus.  That means they can pay 100% of benefits for 17 more years and 80% after that, and if the rich folks would pay at the same rate, we could protect what we have now but provide more for millions currently enrolled plus the great wave of baby boomers entering retirement. The wealthy can ensure the viability of Social Security by paying their fair share now.

3.  The Attacks on the Affordable Care Act have added to the problem.  Many retirees and other working people are being hit hard by the increasing costs of healthcare, insurance and prescriptions.  These problems are only going to intensify in the future.  We must continue to fight for Medicare for All and Universal Care to lower the cost of prescriptions. We must allow Medicare to negotiate the cost of prescriptions with the pharmaceutical companies like the VA does.  We can’t afford to be silent anymore.  We have to fight to prevent 30 million people from being thrown off their health care.  We have to fight to prevent I,500 children of immigrant parents being ripped out the arms of their mothers only to become unaccounted for and lost in the system.  Yes, we must fight.  We must take action.  We must VOTE now and in November.  IT IS TIME!

In Solidarity,

Ron Duva
