Denver, Colo. (June 4, 2019) – Cold War Patriots (CWP), a community resource organization that is the nation’s strongest and most sustained voice advocating for worker benefits, will host a free K-25, X-10, Y-12 Oak Ridge Workers Social in Oak Ridge on Monday, June 17, in Kingston on Tuesday, June 18 and in Knoxville on Wednesday, June 19.

The events will feature a dessert bar, prize giveaways every 30 minutes and a grand prize drawing at 2:45 p.m. The CWP Chairperson Tim Lerew says the organization’s members have requested these types of social events to complement the informational meetings CWP hosts to explain the ins and outs of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
“The nuclear weapons industry is a tight-knit group of people who enjoy getting together to reconnect with co-workers who became friends by sharing a passion and commitment for serving our country,” Lerew says. “We invite workers to grab a friend and join us for a fun afternoon.” Lerew adds that workers do not need to be members of the CWP organization in order to attend.
The EEOICPA program is administered by the U.S.
Department of Labor (DOL) and offers monetary compensation and healthcare
benefits to workers who participated in the nuclear weapons program from 1942
until the present day and became sick because of radiation exposure or other
toxic substances. Learn more at https://www.dol.gov/owcp/energy/.
