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. Thanks to PSC members like you, we’ll have a mayor and council who understand the importance of investing in CUNY. But if we’re going to turn progressive goals into reality, we have to continue the fight and carry it to Albany and City Hall. That’s why we’re asking you to respond to the mailing you recently received from the PSC’s political action committee, PSC/CUNY COPE.
PSC/CUNY COPE – the PSC’s Committee on Political Education – is the political action arm of our union. It is part of the non-partisan VOTE-COPE program supported by tens of thousands of union members from our state and national affiliates, NY State United Teachers, and the American Federation of Teachers. Your voluntary contributions to PSC/CUNY COPE help elect candidates who are pro-CUNY and pro-labor. Your donations also support advocacy related to PSC legislative priorities, part of a broad progressive agenda on education policy, labor rights and social justice advanced by NYSUT and AFT.
PSC/CUNY COPE contributions are separate from your union dues and are collected via payroll deduction or personal check.
Please sign up to support PSC/CUNY COPE: it’s your voluntary contributions that give us the power we need to win. This year’s election has opened up new possibilities – and your support will make sure we can take advantage of them.
