The top priority of the TSEA over the next two years of the 112th General Assembly is to secure the proper monetary reward, whether by salary raises, hazardous duty pay, or bonuses to reflect the sacrifice and dedication shown by state and higher education employees during the pandemic. Our Legislative Agenda for 2021/2022 also includes the following:

  • Secure continued funding to reach 100 % funding for TCRS for state and higher ed employees
  • Secure funding to continue the state’s 80 percent portion of health insurance for state and higher ed employees
  • Extend longevity to employees who do not currently receive it with the bonus based on performance
  • Restore the legislative intent of the burden of proof in a disciplinary hearing to the state
  • Support elimination of private prisons
  • Codify the match on the 401(k) for state employees and higher Ed employees at $50
  • Opportunity for daycare for state employees
  • Expanding paid medical leave
  • Secure funding for increases promised to probation and parole officers in last year’s budget but cut due to a lack of funding
