Committee on Political Education (COPE)

Every year, the affiliated union organizations that comprise the Metro Detroit AFL-CIO vote on which election candidates to endorse based on voting records and working family issues. The Metro Detroit labor movement has a proud history of supporting candidates who support working families. Working in partnership with the Michigan AFL-CIO's Political Department, Metro Detroit’s Central Labor Council and affiliated local unions, the Committee on Political Education (COPE) makes every effort to educate union members and their families about these endorsements and why they were made.
