Mary Tomazi, a UFCW retiree and former employee of Local 655, recently sent a letter to UFCW International President Joe Hansen to thank him for the cost of living increase to her UFCW International Pension Plan. Ms. Tomazi worked at the Health and Welfare Department at Local 655 for 18 years and retired in 1978. She celebrated her 101st birthday in March and attends Local 655 meetings every month. She has been an active member of the Local 655 Retirees’ Club since 1978.
The letter reads:
Thank you for my $5.00 raise as of July 1st, 2014. I retired March 31, 1978 and I go to the Local 655 meeting every month since I retired.
The raises have been very much appreciated.
I was 101 years old March 16, 2014.
Thank you again.
