Review for Association Of Belltel Retirees Inc, Cold Spg Hbr, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As everyone else who worked for Ma Bell knows, we didn't work for the pay. It was very low. We worked for our benefits which was "money in the bank." Now Verizon would like to change their obligation of paying the money that they owe us in health benefits and pensions. VZ and other corporations are trying to re-frame their debt to the retirees as an "entitlement." This is a fight where retirees must stick together and also call on friends and family to take part. Our Mission. "The Association of BellTel Retirees Inc. is dedicated to promote the protection and enhancement of the pensions and benefits for all retirees and beneficiaries of the companies and subsidiaries that make up the Verizon and Idearc/Supermedia Corporations."

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

organizing Verizon retirees and starting a PAC that will benefit all retirees with defined pensions and deferred benefits. Opening a dialog with the Officers of Verizon.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more members and pass legislation that would protect the earned benefits of workers.
