Stand up for your freedom to join unions for a better life.
Stay involved in public education when you retire. Having done so much for your students and our schools as an active educator, we need your knowledge — and your voice. There are so many ways you can continue to participate as an MTA Retired member.
MTA Retired Luncheons
Make your voice heard! Join your colleagues, representatives of the MTA Retired Members Committee and guest speakers for the spring 2018 MTA Retired luncheons. Learn about upcoming state and federal elections. Get updates on the state budget, MTA-backed legislation and the MTA All In membership campaign — and find out what is on the horizon regarding other issues of interest to retirees.
Retired Gathering focuses on contributions to public education
Although most of them are no longer in the classroom, the MTA's retired members are still having a significant impact on public education, as they showed on Oct. 17 and 18 at the MTA Retired Gathering in Hyannis.
