Why Contribute to COPE?
COPE allows us to contribute to the campaigns of pro-worker candidates. SEIU Florida Public Services Union must be involved in electing candidates at all levels of government who value, believe in and will stand up for public employee issues.
Why is SEIU Involved in Politics?
Public Employee collective bargaining rights, job security, working conditions, and benefits are decided by elected officials. To do an effective job in collective bargaining, SEIU Florida Public Services Union must be involved in electing candidates to school boards, city councils, county commissions, Governor, State Legislature, President, and Congress, who value, who believe in, and who will stand up for Public Employee issues at the decision making table.
How is the Money Used?
Every COPE dollar goes into SEIU’s political account for use in local, state and federal political activities. COPE contributors and MPOs make recommendations about who we endorse and how we spend COPE contributions.
