SEIU Local 668 not only advocates for change through collective bargaining, but also by supporting candidates and legislators who support our members, the populations our members support, unions, and working people across Pennsylvania. We do this, in part, through C.O.P.E., which stands for Committee on Political Education. This is our political action committee – a fund whose proceeds are directed towards the electoral campaigns of SEIU-endorsed candidates. This is a voluntary fund to which members contribute, as, by law, membership dues cannot be used to support political campaigns.
We’ve seen what happens when legislators, in the pockets of anti-union corporate special interests, are in power. We can fight back, not just at the ballot box, but also by supporting pro-worker politicians. You can contribute to our union’s COPE fund quickly and easily online through payroll deduction here: https://bit.ly/668COPE. Or, if you’d rather contribute via credit/debit card, you can do so here: https://bit.ly/668COPEdirect.
