TSEU-CWA Members Hold Massive Organizing Blitz!

More than 100 members of the Texas State Employees Union-CWA Local 6186 carried out a multi-faceted organizing blitz for three weeks in May. With help from organizers, activists, stewards, and campaign leads from across the country, they signed up 318 new members at state agencies and universities across Texas!

As part of the blitz, TSEU-CWA members ramped up the final push on their pay raise campaign by hand delivering postcards to key legislators in the final days of the legislative session. 

The last time state workers saw an across-the-board raise, in the 2015 legislative session, it was completely wiped out by an increase in state employees' contributions to the pension fund and big cost increases in dependent health care coverage. With turnover rates at state agencies higher than they've been since 1990, TSEU-CWA members are calling for legislators to give all state agency and university workers a long-overdue $6,000 raise.

TSEU-CWA members also turned out hundreds of votes for TSEU-CWA member Cora Bennett, who is running for the pension fund Board of Trustees.
