Somos / We Are the UT Save Our Community Coalition

Image

We are the Save Our Community Coalition, a group of student and community organizations with the backing of alumni, donors and professors that are pushing the University of Texas to live up to its core values and protect UT campus workers by not eliminating and outsourcing their jobs. We call on UT Chancellor Cigarroa and UT Austin President Powers to stop any further contracts with the corrupt consulting and outsourcing firm, Accenture. Prominent Coalition partners include the Workers Defense Project (WDP), Texas State Employees Union (TSEU), Oxfam, University Leadership Initiative (ULI), Native American & Indigenous Collective (NAIC), Queer People of Color and Allies (QPOCA), Texas Fair Trade Coalition, Education Austin, and United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS).

Visit SAVE OUR UT and sign the petition to stop SHARED SERVICES and the corporate takeover of the University of Texas at Austin.

Somos / We Are the ROC

Diamonds Are Forever

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!

“Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe”

The ROC will organize to make our pensions rise!

Somos / We Are Joan

Somos Joan

It is very easy to say why I joined TSEU.  It was 2003, and a bill had passed that was going to close more than half of the offices that HHSC had open at the time.  The bill would lay off approximately one third of staff.  I wanted to join an organization that was fighting this bill.  I did not know of any other organization out there doing this.

Why I have stayed and gotten involved and want to grow this union is something else.  There is an empowering feeling of being with a group of your peers.  Only other state employees understand the challenges of working for this particular state.  Most at the capitol do not want us here, are itching to privatize our services, lowering standards and removing public oversight.  You have to stick around awhile and survive multiple legislative sessions to see how this works. The biggest challenge is finding some way to speed up the realization about the legislature from the moment someone is hired as a state employee.  I spent many years oblivious to all of this, and it is frustrating to hear fellow employees with same notions.   “Oh, I’ll just do this on my own.  I don’t want to work in a group.”  they say.  So I do my best to help them to have the light bulb go on, and if we can do this on a bigger scale, it will be so powerful!

What members like YOU can do through TSEU!

Members from across the state met in Austin for Lobby Day 2013 to engage lawmakers inside the Capitol. Follow this link to read a recap of all the hard work TSEU members did to protect pay raises, pensions, and healthcare.
