ABOUT THE LRO & THE LUCENT CHAPTER
THE LUCENT RETIREES ORGANIZATION (LRO) was chartered in January 2003 in the state of New York. Its purpose is to address the interests of 127,000 individuals under the Lucent pension plan that embodies all Lucent and Bell Labs retirees, including those who retired when the company was known as Western Electric and/or AT&T Network Systems, plus subsidiaries such as Teletype and Sandia. Western Electric — AT&T Network Systems Division — Lucent Technologies — Alcatel Lucent and NOW: NOKIA!! Throughout, the Lucent Retirees Organization — your LRO — has done its best to represent the interests of its retirees with whatever of the foregoing names. AND all retirees can be assured that the LRO will continue to make sure that company promises made to all of us are kept — no matter the latest corporate name or headquarters location!!” And now we have teamed as a chapter of the National Retirees Legislative Network. The remaining Nokia issues of pensions, life and health care insurance increasingly require lobbying Congress for national solutions. Benefits, including pensions, life insurance, prescription drug costs, Social Security and Medicare are ongoing national issues that face Lucent / Nokia retirees and former Lucent employees who will retire from Nokia in the future and most if not all other NRLN association, chapter and individual members. These issues will impact our kids and grandkids in the future if our generation doesn’t address them now. Your Chapter will continue the fight, with the support of two million other NRLN retirees and professional staff to lobby for legislation that will protect current and future retirees. The NRLN has the numbers, experience on Capitol Hill and the expertise to influence legislation. The LRO’s 17,000 retirees represents a powerful component of that force. Your active participation can make a difference. Over the years over 17,000 retirees have been members, and over 13.000 are still active. Membership is open to current retirees with a Lucent pension, a person vested for a Lucent pension, or the spouse of any such retiree or vested person. JOIN US to receive email updates.
