COPE (Committee of Political Education)


The Passaic County Central Labor Council is the local organization of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). We represent the collective interests of 35,000 union members and their families and 50 affiliated unions in Passaic County, New Jersey.

 Working people are on the front lines of every issue that impacts Passaic County, New Jersey every day.

 Our mission is to improve the lives of working families by electing a pro-labor candidate, who will support the right to collective bargaining, and help bring economic justice to the workplace.

The Passaic County Central Labor Council will support any candidate that will place the needs of working people and their communities first.  All Working Men and Women deserve elected officials that know and understand the importance to earn a right to a fair wage, fair benefits, and the value of equal treatment in the workplace.

 We aim to elect a candidate that will work to make sure our working and middle class continue to thrive and build the future of Passaic County, New Jersey.
