Cope Committee Update : Sept-Oct 2012

This year’s Presidential election may be a close one but for Labor it appears the choice is clear. Watching Romney standing at the podium on February 23rd in Phoenix on C-span stating that our unions were the problem and as soon as he wins the election he will end Project Labor Agreements and repeal the Davis Bacon Act should scare all of us.

I had been non-union for many years before I joined Local 25, I know all too well what it’s like not having a membership watching
each other’s back.

COPE : Political Action : May-June 2012

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

My first involvement with Cope goes back to when I was taking my apprenticeship classes. During break time a delegate walked in and asked if anyone could help out with COPE by doing some hand billing. I had worked 6 years for a non-union electrical contractor, and now that I was doing union work, I had no problem volunteering on a Saturday morning. We met up at 9:00am on a Saturday morning; it was a quick 2 hours of walking with friends. If we don’t get involved in politics, we leave family, friends, and our future in somebody else’s hand.
