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 navigate the changes to our lives triggered by this pandemic. I hope that you and your family and friends have been able to stay safe and healthy. The UFT's Retired Teachers Chapter can offer assistance in these times of need. Please check out the phone numbers and the links to useful resources listed below.

During the pandemic, RTC general membership meetings have been remote. You may take online or in-person Si Beagle courses.

We celebrated our 62st anniversary as a union in March 2022. 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
