A total of $4,185 was raised, half of which goes to COPA, which makes each of those that contributed a WINNER!
To help give our union a stronger voice in national politics, APWU's Committee on Political Action (COPA) collects donations from union members and distributes them to candidates who will stand up for postal workers and working families.
Much is at stake in the ongoing debate over the future of the Postal Service and how it treats its workers and customers. Simply put, postal workers need a strong voice in politics. By law, union dues and general treasury funds cannot be used to make contributions to candidates for elective office.
COPA solitcitaions are restricted to APWU members including retirees who pay retiree dues and their families and executive or administrative personnel of the local union and their families. Federal law prohibits soliciting contributions from outside the restricted class and that such contributions, if made, will be returned to the donor.
