So our HISTORY is that;
In July of 2000 we succeeded in getting legislation passed that re-visited pensions of 557 Retired State Police Officers who, had retired prior to July 1, 1992
As a result, a substantial increase to their
pensions was achieved. As a result of this legislation,
Retired Troopers Hector Grazio and Ronald Bellanti realized that there was a definite need for a organization
that would pursue and preserve benefits for
Retired Troopers. In the past nobody had cared
about the retiree. Hence, the
"Retired Troopers Association"
of Massachusetts (RTA) was formed on
January 1, 2001. The sole purpose of this
organization is to retain and obtain benefits for retirees.
The RTA has been looking for some time, at seeking something for those who retired after the merge.We have been reviewing all database lists, for accurate numbers of who was involved in the merge, and then playing with various formulas, information is being compiled. We need your help !
The RTA is assisting with a group effort, but not lead this effort, we will provide our background knowledge, and
As we all know, recent publicized articles and newscast regarding a few, have painted the State Police in a bad light.
We remind all still on the job, keep marching, and always conduct yourself in the professional way that you have been trained to do, and still do each and every day of your career.
Stay Safe !
Running any organization requires money, and your dues is used to support the efforts of the RTA.
Amazing that in January 2017/18 pay raises were given to those in state public elected office. Interestingly, there is hope and regardless of the bad press, those involved in the MERGE, we feel should be compensated for that alone.
