AFSCME Texas Retirees Chapter 12

Texas Retirees are fighting for a secure retirement for all retired Texans.

The best spokespeople for anyone running for elected office are everyday Americans spreading the word to their neighbors, co-workers, friends and relatives.

Better wages. Check. Better working conditions. Check.

At a time when our country needs real investments in infrastructure, education and public services, congressional leaders 

As AFSCME retirees we know the importance of a strong union. With 6000 members statewide, AFSCME Texas Retirees Chapter 12 is the fastest growing union for retired Texas state employees. Recently we have been able to move Senate Bill 935 and its companion House Bill 265.  This legislation would permit a state retiree to run for one of the elected seats on the ERS Board. It is currently limited to active employees.  

There is bipartisan support for this legislation and we are urging legislators to vote yes when this bill comes before them.
