TEPAC: Building Power and Protection Through Political Action
Support NTEU's Political Action Committee

Back to NTEU Home       Legislative Issues

The Treasury Employees Political Action Committee (TEPAC) is the only way that NTEU, as a federal employee labor union, can contribute to federal candidates for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the presidency.

Why is TEPAC necessary?

TEPAC is the political arm of NTEU and is extremely important to our legislative program. TEPAC allows NTEU to support members of Congress who work to protect and defend the rights of federal employee and retirees. TEPAC also helps to defeat members of Congress who are not supportive of NTEU’s causes. Read about TEPAC in the NTEU Bulletin.

Why doesn't NTEU use some of my dues money to make a political contribution?

Federal law prohibits NTEU from using union dues money for political contributions. TEPAC relies on voluntary contributions.

What criteria are used to determine who receives a TEPAC contribution?

NTEU exercises great care in deciding who should receive TEPAC funds. If the candidate is an incumbent, the decision is based on:

• Candidate’s voting record on NTEU issues
• Relevant leadership or committee assignment
• Relationship between candidate and local NTEU chapters
• NTEU member recommendations
If the candidate is a challenger with no prior congressional experience, the decision is based on:

• Personal interview with the candidate
• Responses to questionnaire on federal employee and retiree issues
• What attempts the candidate has made to establish a relationship with local NTEU chapters
• If applicable, candidate’s record from state or local office
• NTEU member recommendations


Four Easy Ways to Contribute

  e-mail NTEU
Send completed forms and checks to:
1750 H St., NW
Washington, DC 20006

1. Donate right now by credit card or complete and send to TEPAC a credit card contribution form

2. Sign up to contribute through payroll deduction. Complete the 1199a form and mail it to TEPAC!
3. Bump up by increasing your Payroll Deduction Form
4. Mail in your donation to TEPAC by check

PLEASE NOTE: The act of completing form SF-1199-A on federal property and physically walking it to your personnel office is a violation of the Hatch Act. Please complete this form off-site and send it to the TEPAC Director Deborah Jansen at NTEU’s National Office to avoid breaking the law!

Contributions to TEPAC are not tax deductible.  I have the right to refuse to contribute without any reprisal.  Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.

NTEU is not soliciting contributions to TEPAC from any individual who is not an NTEU member, executive or administrative employee of NTEU or its affiliates, or their family member.  Any contribution received from such an individual will be returned to that contributor.
