TSEU is a near 10,000 strong member organization of and for state employees and retirees. Our members live in every part of the state, and work in nearly every state agency and state university. We unite employees across all lines of job title, geography, and employing agency/university to build the strongest possible grassroots organization, one that has the strength to speak effectively in the Capitol and in our offices, facilities, and institutions. Founded in 1980, TSEU is part of the Communications Workers of America, a 700,000 member national union comprised of media, telecommunications, health care, higher education, and public employees. We have built our organization and mobilized our members to fight for the people we serve, as well as for ourselves on the job. OUR LONG-TERM AGENDA INCLUDES: 1) Fair pay; affordable, quality health care for us and our families; a secure pension to assure a decent life for retired state employees; and justice on the job. 2) Fully funded, first-class state services and universities for the people of Texas. 3) The right of Texans to have services provided by public employees who are accountable to elected officials and to the people of Texas!
