TAKE A STAND JOIN COPE!
COPE is the Committee On Political Education
COPE is the only way federal election law allows PEF members and other labor union members to work together in financially supporting political candidates for national office who will support legislation, funding and policies that promote:
- Quality public services at the federal, state and local levels;
- Fair labor and wage laws, healthy and safe workplaces, Social Security, Medicare and pension protections and;
- Affordable, quality public education and health care, a clean, crime-free environment, and other issues important to PEF members and their families.
How are COPE contributions spent?
Voluntary COPE contributions are used to support candidates PEF has endorsed for federal office. (Federal law limits labor unions to using only COPE funds to support candidates for federal office.)
Typically, endorsements are debated and made by the PEF Executive Board with the advice and recommendations of its statewide and regional political action committees. Approximately 100 PEF members serve on these political action committees that interview candidates and review their voting records and positions on issues important to PEF members and working families.
