The PEOPLE Program
PEOPLE (Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality) is CSEA and AFSCME’s legislative and political action program. The PEOPLE  program protects and improves our jobs, benefits and pensions in Washington, Albany and in your community. Your support and participation in PEOPLE strengthens CSEA’s clout in the workplace, in the legislature, in your community and in the labor movement.

To make your voice heard in the political area at the local, state and national levels–where policies affecting your collective bargaining rights, health care, benefits and retirement security are set–we need a strong political action fund.  This is the CSEA/AFSCME PEOPLE Program.

The dollars you voluntarily contribute to the PEOPLE Program help us win and hold on to those rights.  Whether we are public or private sector or retirees, a strong political presence is vital to our existence as a union.
