We are a Union of City Employees

Joined Together to Improve Public Services and Build Strength for Working Families

The Houston Organization of Public Employees is the only civilian city workers’ union in Texas. HOPE Local 123 represents municipal employees and is dedicated to improving equal opportunity, economic growth, education, liberty, and justice for all. Since winning its first labor agreement with the City of Houston in 2009, HOPE Local 123 has grown its membership to include public workers in every city department.
