SSRTA, as a Local Unit of the IRTA, has two missions. One mission is economic and the other is social and/or community.
SSRTA's economic mission is for all of us - all we retired teachers - to join together to continue the fight for our pensions and benefits. We worked our entire careers, paid our share and earned every dollar of our pensions and corresponding economic benefits. We must protect them - joining SSRTA and IRTA give our voices the weight of our numbers. Therefore, we encourage support of the IRTAPAC with donations.
The second mission of SSRTA is to provide an avenue for social and/or community based activities. Historically, SSRTA has participated in community service by taking part in three major projects. We have supported PADS for the homeless, RESPOND NOW for the hungry and needy of the south suburbs, and the IRTA Foundation monthly.
We have eight Luncheons each year, usually on the third Wednesday of the month. Due to the closing of Carlos Restaurant, for 2021 we held our Luncheons at four different area restaurants - and those restaurants will change during 2022 as well. Check back here often. If you have a suggestion for a location for a future SSRTA Luncheon, please send a note (email) to Tony Marturano (see below) or Larry Schwarberg.
