Subject: Day of Outrage Rally Tomorrow & Lobby Day Preparations
TEXAS STATE EMPLOYEES UNION / CWA LOCAL 6186
Lobby Day is our chance to say loud and clear that state employees care. We will stand up for our jobs, our pension, our health care, and for work we do for the people of our state. With the threats to state services and state jobs greater than ever, our show of solidarity and determination also has to be greater than ever.
Be there – Austin – April 6.
To all HOUSTON Area TSEU members
TSEU Lobby Day, Wednesday April 6th is less than a month away! Several events that will help us prepare for Lobby Day are coming up:
Tomorrow: "Day of Outrage" Rally
Houston City Hall / March 15 / 4:30-6:30pm
This is an opportunity for us to voice our opposition to the proposed state budget cuts, and to stand up with fellow public workers in Wisconsin, Ohio, and other states who are pushing back against attacks on public services and public employees. In Texas, the proposed budget cuts will slash funding for public education, higher education, and state services. Our own benefits and jobs are also under attack. Call the TSEU office if you are interested in attending, and look for the TSEU banner at the rally.
Sign and Banner Making Party,
TSEU Office / Saturday March 19 / 11am-3pm
Come by and help make banners and signs for the Lobby Day march and rally. We'll work on continuing the long tradition of creative banners and signs from the Houston area. Artistic skills are not required; Creative suggestions are appreciated. Lunch will be provided.
Be on the bus to take a stand for our jobs and the services we provide / Wednesday, April 6th
