The organization fighting to protect the pension benefits of retired public employees is fighting for new members.
“Seldom in our history have the threats to public employee pensions and health benefits been greater,” states a news release from the Retired Public Employees Association headquarters in California. “At present, there is an effort in California to enact an amendment to the California Constitution, which would allow public employee contracts to be renegotiated including reducing vested benefits for existing and prospective retirees. RPEA will be at the forefront in opposing this effort.”
While the local organization includes some 450 members, officials explain that more are needed.
“There’s strength in numbers and we need many more members,” said local Chapter 97 President Tom Sandford. “RPEA was established to protect and enhance retirement benefits for its members. Its’ ever increasing influence in the retirement community is solely dependent on membership support.”
RPEA’s legislative advocacy benefits both the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) and the University of California Retirement Program (UCRP) retirees.
