Upon retirement, a teacher is no longer a member of the Manitoba Teachers’ Society.
Since 1989 RTAM has been a strong voice for retired teachers. The provincial organization and the local chapters work together serving retired teachers and advocating for their interests and welfare.
Our strength is in our collective voice and our growing membership of approximately 10,000 members.
