The primary function of the Local 31 Committee on Political Education (COPE) is to elect women and men who aggressively work for pro-worker legislation.
The public leaders we elect to office make decisions that affect our lives. These lawmakers shape the laws that govern us, the taxes we pay and the services our government provides. By taking a lead role in federal, state, and local elections, the labor movement can elect more pro-union candidates and subsequently create a more pro-worker political climate.
The IBEW COPE is funded by volunteer contributions from Local Union members. Your COPE contribution is combined with the contributions of other Local 31 members to make you political voice stronger. Your small contribution becomes a part of a much larger force, which enables us to speak as one voice and create valuable political allies. These allies help promote pro-worker legislation and fight anti-working person and anti-family legislation and laws.
Your COPE contribution is divided between the International COPE Committee in Washington, D.C., and the Local 31 COPE Committee. The International Cope Committee can legally give funds to candidates for national offices; while the local COPE Committee disburses funds to local and state political candidates.
By participating in COPE Check-off, you will be eligible for a $100.00 per month drawing and a $1200.00 annual drawing to be held in December of each year.
