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.

In order to continue all of our efforts and to remain a force to be reckoned with at all levels of government, CSEA needs resources. PEOPLE provides the funds that bring us political clout and give us the ability to influence legislation and political leaders at all levels of government through political action.  CSEA needs to be able to interact and communicate with our members all over the state. We need to let our members know what’s happening, what issues are coming up that are important to them and how we plan on fighting. It is an important avenue to make sure our collective voices are heard

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.

This request is small, just twenty-seven cents a day ($1.98 a week) so you can make sure that CSEA’s legislative and political action efforts continue to protect your job, your pension and your union.  Don’t hesitate, click here and join today!
