Join with fellow union members in celebraion of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – he was not only a civil rights activist, but also a labor union activist. The March kicks off with a short program at the MLK Statue at UT. We will march to the south steps of the Capitol for a short program before continuing on to Huston-Tillotson University. Look for the TSEU banner and join fellow TSEU members anywhere along the march route. Wear a TSEU t-shirt and comfortable walking shoes!

R.O.C. (Retiree Organizing Committee) Meeting
Thursday, JANUARY 4 / TSEU office / 12:00noon

Take part in a discussion of retiree issues and learn what TSEU is doing to address them. We will be looking at the upcoming elections in 2018 – this will be our opportunity to impact who is elected, and who stays home; we must defend the pension and health benefits we have earned, and win a long overdue pension increase. We will also be looking at ways to grow our retiree network in Central Texas. Refreshments will be served.

Monthly meeting
Monday, JANUARY 8 / TSEY Office / 6:00pm

The last Session and Special Session has proven how important it is for State Employees to stand together and be involved. We fought attempts to convert our pensions to 401K’s, further privatization, SSLC closures, hiring freezes, and even an attack on our payroll deduction. The 2018 elections are coming up and we have the ability to help reshape the legislature, we can’t miss this chance! Refreshments/snacks will be served.
