HHSC caucus launchs petition drive – sign up NOW!

To HHSC Administration and State Legislators

We, the undersigned staff of the Health and Human Services Commission, call on elected officials to address the serious problems in our agency. WE NEED:

MORE STAFF

We are overloaded and are constantly pressured to meet unrealistic goals related to the number of tasks we complete. Providing quality services to Texans in need has been sacrificed for completing more tasks. Whether or not promised improvements from BPR (Business Process Reengineering) become reality, we need enough staff in our offices to keep up with the growing needs of our state.

ACROSS-THE-BOARD PAY RAISES

Because of healthcare and pension cost increases, our pay decreased even after a meager pay raise in 2015. After years of stagnant pay and the rising cost of living, many dedicated state employees continue to leave our agency because they can’t afford to work here anymore. To make matters worse, we only received a fraction of the performance bonus we were promised. We need a real across the board pay raise to reduce turnover and to help keep experienced staff on the job..
