What is PSC/CUNY COPE?

PSC-CUNY COPE Megaphone.jpgPSC/CUNY COPE is the PSC’s Committee on Political Education—the political action arm of our union and part of the non-partisan VOTE-COPE program supported by tens of thousands of union members from our state and national affiliates, NYSUT and the AFT. PSC/CUNY COPE contributions are separate from your union dues, and are collected via payroll deduction or personal check.

2013 PSC-CUNY COPE Brochure

This November PSC members voted overwhelmingly to elect the candidate we endorsed for Mayor, Bill de Blasio, and to elect the most progressive City Council candidates in many years.

But if we’re going to turn progressive goals into reality, we have to continue the fight, and we have to carry it to Albany.
