VOTE-COPE is NYSUT's non-partisan political action fund. It pools the voluntary contributions of members from across the state to make contributions to pro-education candidates and to support political action that aims to protect our incomes and careers, health and safety, retirement changes, and health care.

As public employees, almost all conditions affecting our professional environment, working conditions and pension rights are determined by the actions of New York State Legislature, the Governor, and the U.S. Congress. If we wish to have a positive influence on our professional future, we must take an active part in the political process.

For more information or to contribute see your building representatives.
