About Texas AFT AMP

The Texas AFT Associate Membership Program (AMP) is an introductory membership program for Texas AFT.

Hear from Texas AFT AMP members on why they chose to join.

AMP membership offers discounted dues rates while maintaining high-quality union benefits.

We represent K-12 educators and support professionals working in districts that do not yet have a local AFT union. We do not accept administrators as members.

Texas AFT AMP aims to build local unions capable of sustainably representing all members. By supporting local efforts to create a deeper and broader understanding of employee rights and union organizing, we can 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 seeks to 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.
