The Retired Members’ Section was established to provide support and information for retired members of the Union to enable them to continue to participate in the growth and development of the union. The Section deals with a range of issues of concern to retired members including social welfare, health, pensions, personal security, retirement planning and public transport. It also oversees the general organising of retired members throughout the country.
SIPTU’s Retired Members’ Section works to improve later life by addressing a wide variety of issues that matter to retired and older people – such as the lack of high-quality, accessible, integrated health and social care, poverty and low income, insecurity in the home and community as well as discrimination in all its forms.
It was created as a space to provide support and information for retired members of the Union to enable them to continue to participate in the growth and development of the Union.
