Solidarity & Politics

By joining together as a political movement, we can stop the attacks on workers. 

Through your voluntary contribution to COPE, our political action fund. Your $5 per month (or more) means you’ll have a voice in how UC spends the billions it receives from the state, and what policies it enacts.

  • UPTE collaborated closely with Governor Jerry Brown and legislators to protect education funding by working to pass Proposition 30, and defeat Proposition 32, a corporate attempt to silence workers and unions.

  • UPTE is collaborating with legislators to introduce shared governance of the UC retirement plan, including putting employee representatives on the Board of Regents.

  • With the support of COPE funds and the efforts of many union members, we helped elect California Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-District 20), an UPTE member at the Livermore National Lab.

It has never been more critical for UPTE-CWA members to build our political strength as workers and get involved in the fight for dignity and justice.

YES, I’ll donate! Fill out this UC payroll form for any amount and give it to your local union representative.

Every dollar you give is put to work building political power for you, your family and your future.
