Recent Information

Because government action and legislation have such a great impact on the lives of working people, it is essential that Central Labor Councils have political programs.

Through the COMMITTEE ON POLITICAL EDUCATION (COPE), and with the help locally of
Labor Clubs, the labor movement works to involve union members and their families in the democratic process, and to elect officials at all levels of government sympathetic to the needs of working people.

The Committee on Political Education exists at the national, state and local levels.  The National AFL-CIO COPE Department develops programs to carry out the federation's political objectives and works with State AFL-CIO's and Central Labor Council's to implement the programs.  Central Labor Councils have their own COPE structure to organize and pursue political programs in their jurisdictions.  Fundamental activities of COPE are endorsements of candidates, voter registration, political education, and get-out-the-vote.

Robert A. Soutier, President and the members of the Executive Board are COPE officers.
