Protecting Retirement

Under the UPW Retiree Chapter, there are five sub-chapters: Hawaii Sub-Chapter, Kauai Sub-Chapter, Maui Sub-Chapter, Molokai Sub-Chapter (including members on Lanai), and Oahu Sub-Chapter.

All retired persons who were members of UPW, AFSCME, Local 646, AFL-CIO and their spouses are eligible for membership in the retiree chapter.
