March 2, 2022. We were all deeply saddened to learn of the passing of AFTW icon, Kathy Monaghan. Kathy served on the WFT/ AFTW Executive Board for more than 5 decades, first as secretary, and more recently as a Vice President representing retirees. She was instrumental in helping organize Local 8047R, the retiree chapter of AFTW, and served as its president for the past 17 years. She also supported and served in numerous other capacities in her local, Local 202, the Superior Federation of Teachers, in the Central Labor Council, in the Firefighters Union, and in the Democratic Party.
