Retirees are the backbone of our labor movement. They have paved the way for the generations of workers that follow in their footsteps. Our retirees stood for a vision and battling corporate greed they built the foundation of our great Union.

In support of our retirees this site is dedicated to providing resources and information pertaining to the retirees of ADT, AT&T (legacy T), Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Century Link/Qwest, CSI, Embarq, Frontier/Verizon & OFS and to address any issues or concerns that they may have. This site is supported by Technologies and Telecommunications Staff dedicated to making a difference.

In addition, Active and Retired CWA members can find employer-specific (i.e., ADT, AT&T (legacy T), Alcatel-Lucent etc.) health care and EAP related news and information on this page, as well as related articles on topics of interest to everyone. Click here to contact us! »
