About PEOPLE

What is PEOPLE?

 

OAPSE/AFSCME members all over the state are active in influencing elections and legislation. We lobby our local school boards, county commissioners, state lawmakers and even our representatives in Washington through phone calls, letters, emails and knocking on doors.

Another key way to impact elections and legislation is to join theAFSCME PEOPLE program – the union’s political, legislative and fundraising arm – by making voluntary monetary donations. Since by law union dues cannot be used to fund political campaigns, voluntary member contributions to the PEOPLE fund are used to help elect pro-worker candidates.

PEOPLE (Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality) is about the difference between having things happen to you and making things happen.

By participating in PEOPLE, you can have a direct impact on the political process – from helping shape policies on privatization and other issues that affect us, to helping elect the public officials who are your bosses.

As a public employee, your job, wages and working conditions are directly linked to politics. We need the active participation of all members in order to make our legislative/political program strong and, in turn, to be effective when we work on behalf of our members. From school levies to possible changes in Social Security and public pension retirement benefits to anti-union initiatives in the states – politics affect everyone. No other group of employees has such a direct connection to politics as AFSCME members. That is why PEOPLE matters.

PEOPLE works to affect the political process on many levels. It is important to realize that pro-worker candidates are generally outspent by opponents – often by more than 10 to one. “Big Business” is always a big spender for their candidates. Without our member contributions, pro-worker candidates would face almost impossible odds.

But PEOPLE provides more than money to candidates and campaigns. Trained AFSCME volunteers participate in campaigns to give pro-worker candidates the winning edge. Our political activists can make the crucial difference in any race. AFSCME also serves as a strategic resource for pro-worker candidates to help map out successful campaign strategies.

To provide a strong political voice for public employees, we need your help. Click here to find out more about joining PEOPLE and making a difference for yourself, your family and your coworkers
