As a transit worker, school bus employee or over-the-road bus worker, your job, wages and working conditions are directly linked to politics. Representatives in federal, state and local government make crucial decisions every day that determine the amount of funding available to your transit system or school district, the safety and security requirements at your workplace, your bargaining rights, and more.
As the largest transit worker Political Action Committee (PAC) in the United States, ATU-COPE is the voice of transit workers, school bus employees and over-the-road bus workers at all levels of government. Since by law, union dues cannot be used to fund political campaigns, voluntary member contributions to ATU-COPE are used to help elect pro-labor, pro-transit candidates for local, state and federal office and then hold them accountable once they are elected.
Federal law prohibits ATU COPE from soliciting contributions from individuals who are not ATU members, ATU and its affiliates’ executive and administrative staff, and their families. Any contribution received from any other individual will not be accepted and will be returned to that individual.
