Retiree Club Participation:  We would encourage all retired iron workers (members or previous members) to attend meetings or activities offered by the Retiree's club. Also, the officers of the Retiree's Club and Local 512 would appreciate your help in notification of deceased iron workers in your area. Many times a member or previous member passes away and it goes unnoticed. This may be due to the obituary notice only being published in the local paper where that member lives. Should you know of a member or previous member who passed away, please call your Local 512 regional Representative.      Thank You!

Reminder to all Ironworker Retirees:  In the event of a change of address or phone number, please contact the fund administrator at Wilson-McShane and Local 512's St. Paul office or your regional office to report a change.        Thank You!

The Ironworkers Retiree's Club was established by retired Ironworkers for the good and welfare of our retired membership. This includes conducting informational meetings to address retiree issues and update our members on vital information in regards to retirement. The meetings also serve as an opportunity to socialize with other retirees renewing old friendships and making new ones!

Membership Requirements: Any retired member or former member who is presently receiving a pension check from the Twin City Iron Workers Fringe Benefit funds or other Fringe Funds previous to the merger of Locals 793 and 563.

Meetings: The Retiree's Club usually meets three times a year in Region A. However, additional meetings may be scheduled as necessary. Keep in mind the Retiree's Club does not meet in the winter months (January, February, and March). Meetings dates will be announced by mail and on the Web Site.
