SMART TD Alumni Association Benefits

Join the SMART TD Alumni Association!



Retired SMART TD (formerly UTU) members in the U.S. and Canada, as well as those individuals nearing retirement or interested in pension and other issues affecting transportation-labor families, are invited to participate in a voluntary program designed especially for them, the SMART TD Alumni Association. With annual dues set at only US $9 per year, membership in this fast-growing program doesn’t cost — it pays! SMART TD Alumni Association members enjoy:
