The Texas AFT Associate Membership Program (AMP) is an introductory membership program for Texas AFT that gives educators statewide a voice on issues, even when they don’t yet have a local union. Learn more by calling 1-800-222-3827.

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 don’t 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.

Members enjoy many benefits, including $8 million professional liability insurance and our union’s AFT+ Member Benefits program.
