At the direction of the officers, NYSUT is launching a new program to encourage NYSUT retirees to contact the union with their email and other contact information. "This is part of an ongoing effort to organize and mobilize our retired members," said NYSUT Vice President Kathleen Donahue. "Our retirees are one of our union's greatest assets." The plan will allow the union and the retiree council presidents to communicate with retirees faster and more efficiently.
All retirees who submit their information will be entered in monthly drawings to win NYSUT-branded items. The NYSUT officers strongly encourage all NYSUT retirees to register for this important effort as soon as possible.
