UTU Alumni Association aids union’s retirees

The UTU Alumni Association is the new name of the program that serves retired members of the United Transportation Union.
Established as the UTU Retiree Program by delegates in 1976 to aid union retirees and their families, the program most recently was called the UTU for Life program.
(This program has no relation to lifetime UTU membership, which is awarded when a member retires in good standing. Retired members holding lifetime membership in the UTU are not automatically members of the UTU Alumni Association.)
The UTU Alumni Association is a voluntary, money-saving program for transportation retirees from all crafts.
UTU Alumni Association members enjoy the many benefits shown here:
The UTU Alumni Association is under the direction of retired Florida State Legislative Director Carl Cochran, who works every day to make sure the program serves the retired members of this union.
As a retired state legislative director, Cochran is also in touch with state and national lawmakers who hold sway over the Railroad Retirement System. He is an important aid to the UTU’s Legislative Department in protecting and improving this vital program.
Retired UTU members in the U.S. and Canada, as well as those individuals nearing retirement or interested in pension and other issues affecting transportation-labor families, are invited to participate in the UTU Alumni Association.
With annual dues set at only $9.00 (U.S.) per year (the same as when the program was established in 1976!), membership in this fast-growing program doesn’t cost – it pays!
