Thanks to efforts by the Biden administration and AFSCME, many public service workers, 

Many AFSCME members work in high-stress fields such as public safety, health care, emergency medical services and firefighting.

HOUSTON – Public service workers across south Texas worked tirelessly to keep basic operations going throughout Hurricane Harvey and in its aftermath.

AFSCME workers and retirees in and around Houston and throughout south Texas, from Beaumont to Corpus Christi, were a huge part of that effort. They continued serving their communities even though their homes and neighborhoods were devastated and their families were in need.

AFSCME members are stepping up to help their sisters and brothers affected by Harvey in Texas. Thank you. And please keep the donations coming.
During what may be the worst natural disaster in Texas history, AFSCME public service workers and first responders are making heroic efforts to keep people alive, restore essential services and protect property.

AFSCME members won big in the Lone Star state. City workers secured an historic pension reform plan and Correctional employees secured more than $13 million in vehicle replacement funds and $40 million for much needed repairs to correctional facilities and units.

The big budget win was the result of direct action by AFSCME Texas Corrections members, including lobbying, phone calls, petitions, and one-on-one conversations with legislators.
