Active retirement takes on a whole new meaning through SOAR, the Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees. SOAR is a voice for USW retirees and their families and keeps retirees connected with the union.


Becoming a member of a SOAR Chapter is the best way to stay involved when you retire. SOAR Chapter membership provides retirees and their spouses with a vehicle for continued social interaction with their friends and co-workers. The SOAR Chapters also serve as the focal point of legislative and political activity on behalf of the union’s members and all retirees. SOAR Chapter members also receive a variety of other benefits. For more information on how to join, please visit the dedicated SOAR web page.
