TSEU-Retiree Mini-Lobby Day 2015

We are TSEU members of the Retiree Organizing Committee (ROC). We are TRS and ERS retirees from state agencies and universities. We are building a strong union of retirees to fight for:  a cost-of-living increase for TRS and ERS annuitants; keeping the ERS and TRS pensions secure; keeping the health care benefits affordable.  JOIN TODAY! (see more below the Caucus information)


An open letter from members of the TSEU R.O.C. Caucus .


ROC Caucus Legislative Goals: 2019-2020

  • Enact pension increases for ERS and TRS that reflect the increase in the cost of living since 2001 by making an immediate cash infusion; fully fund the state pension system; provide on-going cost of living increases
  • Oppose any conversion to defined contribution plans for pensions or health care
  • Continue payroll deduction of union dues for ERS retirees and active state employees.
