Texas educators don’t have to wait to build their power — they can ‘amp’ up their organizing with us.
The Texas AFT Associate Membership Program (AMP) is an introductory membership program for Texas AFT. Members are provided discounted dues rates while maintaining high-quality union benefits. We represent K-12 educators and support professionals. We do not accept administrators as members.
Texas AFT AMP will strive to build local organizations capable of winning collective bargaining for all members. We believe this goal will be furthered when we have a state organization in which locals are served effectively, leaders are informed, and members are involved in the organization. By supporting local efforts to create a deeper and broader understanding of collective bargaining, we will give school employees the vision and the vehicle needed to defend their rights and those of their colleagues.
To accomplish the task of organizing school employees in Texas, Texas AFT AMP will position itself so that school employees, state officials and the public at large will see our union as the best and most effective advocate of the public schools, public school students and public school employees.
