2018 Annual Retiree Chapter Hosted Luncheon
We have scheduled the Retiree Chapter hosted luncheon at the MGM Casino Detroit for Thursday February 15, 2018. All Retiree Chapter members are invited for a free meal at the Palette Buffet inside the MGM Grand Casino. We will be meeting inside the MGM just outside the Palette at 2:00 PM.
Please RSVP by February 12th (email@example.com) to allow for us to notify the Palette regarding our number. We look forward to this get together as an opportunity for fellowship in addition to “nourishment”, if you know what I mean. If you need directions please contact me at the Union office or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retirees not yet members of the Chapter are welcome provided they are willing to complete a membership application at the event.
Retiree Chapter News
The Local’s Retiree Chapter was organized over four years ago with the purpose working together to maintain our benefits as well as an opportunity to have continued fellowship. We meet quarterly to deal with our business as well as making new friends and seeing our old friends. All Local retirees are welcome to join the Chapter. Contact me at the Union office for the membership application.
The Retiree Chapter met December 13th for our quarterly meeting at Louie’s Pizzeria. It was decided to have our holiday luncheon at the MGM Palette Buffet on Thursday February 21, 2019. The event is open and free to all those Local retirees that are currently paying the $3 per month retiree dues. Those that have not as yet joined the Chapter will be welcome provided they are prepared to sign up at the event. If you are willing to join, please bring your CSA number and we’ll see you there.
The next quarterly Retiree Chapter business meeting will be Thursday March 21, 2019 once again at Louie’s Pizzeria in Hazel Park. Pizza, salad and soft drinks are provided. The officers will be providing updates on the current contract negotiations and legislative activity that could impact our retirement benefits. We will also be discussing future social activities. I hope to see you there as well.
