Would you devote a couple of hours a year
to SAVING YOUR PENSION?
danger is a lot more real than you think!!)
CONSIDER JOINING RTAC'S E-mail Alert Network.
They're the people who watch the
circumstances of retired Chicago public school teachers. Their
aim is to preserve and enhance our existing benefits. Because our
conditions are largely determined by legislators, both state and
national, RTAC monitors the Illinois General Assembly and the U. S.
Congress for proposed actions that concern us. RTAC Alert Network
members have promised that when asked, they will
contact their own legislators,
by telephone, email or letter, on behalf of retired Chicago
teachers. This will
not happen more than 12 times per year. (PLEASE NOTE that
because the Illinois General Assembly does most of its business in the
spring or mid-fall, these contacts are not likely to be evenly
spaced over time.)

To join the E-mail Alert Network:

address and zip code to either: webmaster@RTAC.org or firstname.lastname@example.org
YOU ARE CALLED UPON:
Your call to action will (a) summarize the effects of the legislation
considered, (b) indicate what RTAC recommends and why, and (c) suggest
two ways to phrase your request. Please do NOT feel limited by
suggestions; your own words usually strengthen your case. One strong
dictate to or threaten your legislator! We are asking for
help; we are in no position to demand it.

attack on CPS retirees. At present they are a tiny fraction of
the more than 22,000 CPS retirees, but their efforts are beginning to
