Come to an open regular meeting of FORUM (Federation of Retired Union Members), an organization of retirees sponsored by the San Francisco Labor Council.

The July 2013 program will highlight members’ current activities as well as personal recollections of the 1934 General Strike and other strikes in San Francisco. Those who have stories to tell are especially invited to come share memories. 

Retirees come from a spectrum of unions with members and workers in San Francisco. FORUM supports alliances between working people and retired people to preserve and improve social security, pension and health benefits.
