I think state employees should be a part of TPEA because they help all state employees, like they did with getting us two across-the-board pay raises. TPEA also helps us into retirement as they advocate for our pensions, stabilizing the funds, and other benefits too. We should all join because it’s not just helping ourselves but each other too.

Join TPEA Today. We're all stronger together.

The Texas Public Employees Association (TPEA) was established in 1946 by dedicated state employees to effectively represent and advocate for the interests of state employees and retirees.

TPEA is one of the largest and most experienced associations representing state employees, plus the only nonunion, nonpartisan group serving state employees during and after their careers.

The Texas Legislature holds sway over crucial aspects of your career, from salaries to benefits, both during your service and in retirement. As state employees, we recognize that our strength lies in our unity through membership.

TPEA is dedicated to supporting state employees and retirees, advocating for better salaries, benefits, and more, enabling dedicated Texans like yourself to pursue fulfilling careers in public service. Together, we form a formidable force that drives positive change.

Thanks to the efforts of TPEA members, these achievements highlight the power of collective action and the importance of being part of our association.

I relied on TPEA for years regarding information about changes in our benefits and what’s going on in the Legislature. Then, I decided to become a member and eventually volunteer so that I could help advocate for myself. The advocacy helped get our recent state raises. TPEA showed up to over 50 hearings to get the across the board pay raises. And they fight for our benefits like keeping premiums low. TPEA fights for employees, they fight for us.

"I wished I would have joined earlier in my career at TDCJ," said Vernon Pittman. "TPEA consistently fights for what’s most important to state employees, and that is our salaries, pensions, and benefits."
