Tom Murphy, Chapter Leader for Retired Teachers

Dear Retiree,

Welcome to the Retired Teachers Chapter section of the UFT website. These are difficult days as we all attempt to navigate our lives through an unchartered national emergency due to the coronavirus. At this writing, none of us knows how long it will last but the severity of the crisis is well known to each of us. I hope that you and your family and friends can endure this unprecedented health emergency. The UFT/RTC can offer assistance in these times of need. The email messages we sent to all retirees are posted here with links and telephone numbers and resources that we hope you can find useful.

All trips, the Day at the University and retiree luncheons have been cancelled in the interest of safety. RTC general membership meetings and Si Beagle courses have now transitioned to Zoom.

In 2020, we called as many RTC members as we could reach in the greater New York area and around the country to see how you were doing. We are still here to help.

We celebrated our 61st anniversary as a union in March 2021. We have much to remember, celebrate and build upon.

When times return to normal, we will  join together again in all our regular activities and enjoy the camaraderie we've built over the years. Please stay safe and stay connected. The union is here for you.

In Solidarity,

Tom Murphy
