Local 177 Retiree Council

The Local 177 Retiree Council was established on the 27th of December, 1988. The object of the Retiree Council is to 1) maintain the fraternal ties of union members during retirement years, 2) provide retired members with an opportunity for social and recreational activity, 3) enlist the support of retired members in promoting progressive programs, 4) enlist the support of retired members for political objectives, and 5) bring the special problems of retired members to the attention of LiUNA, its Local Unions, and District Councils.

Retiree Membership & Benefits

Retired members are encouraged to continue their membership and active participation in the Local 177 Retiree Council. The cost of retiree dues is $12 per month and afford you the following life insurance and accidental death/dismemberment benefits:

  • Ullico $2,000 Life Insurance Policy
  • Ullico $2,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment Policy
  • LiUNA $20,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment Policy
  • American Income Life $3,500 Accidental Death & Dismemberment Policy

Retiree Council meetings are held at the Local 177 union hall on the second Thursday of every other month at 10:00 am unless otherwise notified. Lunch and refreshments provided. Retiree members will receive a meeting notice by mail prior to each meeting. These meetings are open to all active retirees and spouses. The Retiree Council also sponsors a wide variety of social, civic, charitable, volunteer, and educational programs, and projects and activities that benefit our members, retirees, families, and communities. Such activities range from I-Cubs games and picnics at Principal Park to steamboat cruises on Lake Rathbun. Our volunteer activities include packaging meals with Meals from the Heartland to working at events for Special Olympics.
