The Retiree Division hosted it’s bi-annual, statewide Florida retiree conference on March 29th. Over 100 retirees attended the event – some traveling from as far as Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Though focusing on benefits education, the conference also served as a “kick off” for the union’s 60th Anniversary. Charter members Arthur Cordiviola (1952); German Colon (1957) and Salvatore Azzarello (1958) received “Founders Awards” from Secretary-Treasurer Ruben Torres, Recording Secretary Patricia Stryker and Trustee Curtis Scott.

President Abraham Lincoln once said: “It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Clearly, he could have been talking about the retirees of Teamsters Local 237. Our retirees are activists who participate in many projects that range from political to historical, from the arts to education, from unionism to community engagement, and from health care to planning for the future. The retirees get involved. Throughout 2016, there were celebrations, seminars, parades, exhibitions, classes, trips and calls to action in which the retirees enthusiastically participated. Here are just some of the highlights of the year that underscore retiree activism, achievement and enrichment.
"Retired From Work, Not From The Union"
The Retiree Division is 8,000-strong, and growing. Local 237 retirees span six decades, ranging in age from 35 to 95. Just under 90 percent are men, most are married, and hundreds have young children. About 85 percent are in the New York area, but Local 237 retirees live in 48 states and Washington, DC, and in nearly a dozen countries and U.S. territories.
Local 237's Retiree Division exemplifies the Teamsters' lifelong commitment to members. The Division's programs and services reflect Local 237's philosophy: You may retire from work, but you never retire from the union.
Local 237 retirees served the city of New York faithfully for years and helped build Local 237 into a powerful force. They are responsible for many of the benefits city employees enjoy today.
Retirees have a right to a secure, rewarding retirement. Programs, services, and activities sponsored by the Local 237 Retiree Division are union benefits to which all retired members in the Housing and Citywide Divisions are entitled.
