Political Action

IBEW 29 understands the importance of being politically active. Our union's involvement in Legislative Issues through our Political Action Committee is vital if we intend to succeed in our constant battle for the good paying jobs and safe working conditions that our members deserve. When we participate in Labor Walks, lobby days or simply gather together at Central Labor Council meetings and at Trenton, we create the foundation along with strong relationships that are essential in lobbying for important legislation that benefits all utility workers in the Iron State. So start helping to build power today by downloading the IBEW 29 Commmittee on Political Education (COPE) Card and give a little each week. Simply give the card to your Steward or Business Agent.
