We Are the Voice of TVA Professionals
The Engineering Association (EA) is a professional employee organization, run by and for TVA employees to ensure we have a voice in TVA's future. The EA is recognized as the designated representative for collective bargaining for all TVA engineers, technicians and white collar employees not in management.
Founded in 1937 by engineers, scientists and technical employees who wanted a voice that would represent their concerns on wages, working conditions and other issues existing in the relationship between themselves and TVA.
We communicate with TVA management and public officials concerning a variety of issues, namely needed improvements and challenges we as employees face. We also negotiate with TVA management regarding: wages, fringe benefits, working conditions, severance pay, reclassification procedures, posting requirements on vacant positions, seniority provisions for directed transfer, and reduce-in-force (RIF).
