The Committee on Political Education
COPE MEETING / Tuesday, Jan 2 / 6:00pm / TSEU office, 454 Soledad Street, Suite R-200

[The Committee on Political Education – COPE] TSEU’s Political Organizer, Tyler Sheldon will lead the meeting. The last Session and Special Session has proven how important it is for State Employees to stand together and be involved. We fought attempts to convert our pensions to 401K’s, further privatization, SSLC closures, hiring freezes, and even an attack to remove the ability for state employees and teachers to join a union through payroll deduction. This constant battle makes it even more important to not sit on the sidelines. The 2018 elections are coming up and we have the ability to help reshape the legislature which is why our COPE fund and COPE committees are more important than ever. Make plans to be at this meeting and see what you can do to get involved!
