Senior's Power in Saskatchewan

As a generation of unonists and activists retire and hope to enjoy their senior years, they continue to organizet to have their voices heard as new realities confront them.

Seniors' Voice is published by a group of non-profit seniors organizations. Their stated purpose is "to inform seniors about the many and varied issues which impact on the sense of well-being of all segments of our society. We are dedicated to the preservation of our Canadian Quality of Life, which has made Canada the best country in the world in which to live." Visit their webpage for on-line copies of their newsletter and contact information.

Other organizations are also fighting for retired workers. The Saskatchewan Federation of Union Retirees (SFUR) is a provincial affiliate of the Congress of Union Retirees of Canada (CURC) which is the independent senior wing of the Canadian Labour Congress, representing retired members of the labour movement. It is open to anyone over 50 years of age, who has been a member of any Canadian Labour Congress affiliated union at any time in their working years (or is presently a member of a union) can join. Spouses are also welcome to join.

The Saskatchewan Retirees Association Inc. represents mostly former employees from Saskatchewan's public service. Visit the SRA website for more information.

"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Power is ever stealing from the many to the few." from Senior's Voice.
