COPE is our union's Committee on Political Education and serves as a joint fundraising effort with AFL-CIO to help support pro-union political activity at the local, state and federal levels.

If you'd like to become a COPE contributor, please contact your Adjunct Liaison, campus VPs, or the 2067 local office on Allegheny Campus for more information.
