The IBT Department for Retiree Affairs was established in 1983 to create a closer bond among all retired Teamsters. The Department is dedicated to meeting the needs of all retired Teamsters and is consistently working to improve and enhance affordable programs and services for our retirees.

Retirees are vital to political and member education. They can help assist our local union, and the IBT as a whole, in areas such as initiate letter-writing campaigns to communicate their view to elected officials on the local, state and national level. Retiree Chapters can sponsor voter registration drives. They can organize get-out-to-vote campaigns or become involved in political campaigns on behalf of labor-friendly candidates. RETIREE CHAPTER WEB SITES
