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.
