 Today is Day 11 of the 140-day regular session of the 86thTexas Legislature.

Focus on Fair Shot for Working Families

The Texas AFL-CIO launched a Fair Shot legislative agenda that includes both perennial wage and benefit topics and cutting-edge issues that affect a broad spectrum of working families in Texas.

An Inclusive Vision for Texas

The Texas AFL-CIO will advocate for its broadest legislative agenda in years – a Fair Shot agenda that empowers Texas working families to improve their lives.

On behalf of the Texas AFL-CIO, a federation of public and private-sector labor unions, I am here to submit oral testimony that supplements the public comments we have submitted on the proposed unemployment insurance rules relating to the so-called “gig economy last month. Specifically, we wish to object to the proposed rules for amending Chapter 815 of the Texas Administrative Code in their entirety.
