Ohio AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1184

Founded in 1989, Ohio AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1184 is a leading voice fighting to protect retirement security for public service retirees and all Ohioans by standing up for pensions like OPERS, SERS and CRS as well federal retirement benefits like Social Security and Medicare.

While working, retired Ohio public service workers made Ohio a great place to live, work and raise a family. We didn't do it to get rich or famous but we are proud of our service to our state and our communities and part of the deal was a secure retirement when we retired. Unfortunately, there are those who would rather cut taxes for the rich than keep their part of the deal.

That's why a group of Ohio public service retirees came together and founded Ohio AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1184: to stand up and fight for the freedom and dignity that all public service retirees deserve. 

With thousands of members and local groups across the state, Ohio AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1184 members are leading the fight to protect and expand our retirement benefits. 

And we're not alone in this fight, we're part of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the leading public service union. Nationally, AFSCME Retirees has 200,000 retiree members organizing to protect and expand retirement security. 


America’s communities never rest. Streets need cleaning. Families need care. Students deserve well-run schools, and our neighborhoods demand safety. That’s why people who work in public service never stop. This isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. The work matters because it means something to make a community better.

AFSCME believes that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect. As part of the AFL-CIO, AFSCME is one of the nation’s leading advocates for working women and men. Our 1.4 million members provide the vital services that make America happen, and we believe everyone deserves a chance to fulfill the American dream.

AFSCME is the union that honors solidarity without conformity, drawing each member’s story into a force of experience and commitment that can’t be ignored. That’s how we win better lives for ourselves, our families, and our communities. For people proudly committed to public service, we never quit.

We are AFSCME, join us.
