In 2019, Union Forever was founded as a place for retirees to stay connected and keep up the fight for retirement security and a better future for working people. Since then, we have:

  • Grown our community from a few hundred to more than 10,000 strong
  • Supported fights for workers' rights, including Kaiser Permanente health care workers' fight against retirement benefit cuts
  • Stood up for frontline workers during the pandemic, calling for more PPE from the government and making masks at home
  • Mobilized voters in the 2020 election, sending postcards, texting voters, and making sure people registered and turned out
  • Advocated for the American Rescue Plan, a higher minimum wage, protections for Social Security, and other legislation to help working people and retirees
  • And more!
"There are attacks still on working people, pay inequity between men and women, too low a minimum wage, vile voter suppression laws and attacks on our democracy. I know my activism as a Retiree does enhance and support the actions of all those still working and fighting for social and economic justice."
- Merle Cuttitta, Chair of the Union Forever Workgroup
“The purple shirt is a reminder of the hope we have for a more equitable America, where workers receive a livable wage and CEO’s are taxed appropriately!”
- Dee Stannard, Union Forever Member
"As retirees, we have to educate the younger generations to understand the power of our union. Our communities were built on the ability to make good wages, have health insurance and have a voice politically. That is the power of our Union. We have to pass the torch and make sure the work to protect these benefits continues."
- Darlester Lee, Union Forever Member
I keep wearing my purple shirt because now is the time when progress is possible and I don't want to miss witnessing all the success coming our way.
- Alex Suarez, Union Forever Member
