COPE Political Contributions

COPE means Committee On Political Education. It is the AFL-CIO political support organization. Contributions to COPE are divided half to the State Council and half to Local 6025. We use the funds to support candidates or promote issues favorable to our members.  [Learn more ]

Why Contribute to COPE?
We mostly support state assembly and senate candidates. Contributions of $200-$300 are significant in such races and give our local (or the Council) access to legislators to court their support for our needs.

How Much Does It Cost?
You can deduct a COPE contribution of as little as $.50 per paycheck. We recommend $1 (or more). For adjunct faculty, $1 means $10 per semester or $20 per year
