CONGRESS OF HOUSTON TEACHERS
Local • Experienced • Professional
The Congress of Houston Teachers (CHT) is a local professional teacher association that has represented HISD educators since 1954. With more than 60 years experience working exclusively with HISD educators, CHT is uniquely qualified to address our members’ concerns on local campuses and with the HISD administration and school board. If you are new to HISD or a current employee of the district who is not a member of CHT, we invite you to join.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: Payroll Deduction
Senate Bill 7 and House Bill 156 have been filed in Austin this special session to eliminate payroll deduction for dues to unions and professional associations. While the bills exempt police, fire, and EMS employees who may continue to use payroll deduction, the bills eliminate it for teachers and other public employees.
