OPENING CHAPTER MEETING, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1 PM. The retiree chapter's initial meeting every academic year is on the “State of the Unions(s).” However, we also need to address the changes in retiree healthcare. Hence the meeting will be divided into two parts. Register in advance HERE.
1. STATE OF THE UNION(S). Our speakers are James Davis, PSC President (on the state of our union) and Ruth Milkman, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center, and the director of research at CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (on the state of the union movement).
2. RETIREE HEALTHCARE. Starting at 2 pm, we’ll devote the rest of the meeting to issues and concerns about the changing Medicare coverage (extending the meeting beyond 3 PM if necessary). You can join the meeting at 2 pm (or any time) if you can’t make the first part. We are seeking answers to questions raised in the chat at the 8/30 information meeting, which we will address (including those by TIAA members about annuities to pay for healthcare insurance).
