TEXAS AFL-CIO COPE POSTS ENDORSEMENTS FOR CONGRESSIONAL, LEGISLATIVE SEATS

The Texas AFL-CIO COPE rounded out its pre-primary endorsement list by adopting recommendations from central labor bodies across the state to go with endorsements made at the COPE Convention. 

“Speaking through Central Labor Councils and the Area Labor Federation, our affiliates have carefully vetted candidates and endorsed, by at least two-thirds vote, those they believe will build a better Texas for working families,” Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy said.

  The Texas AFL-CIO COPE Convention approved statewide endorsements on Jan. 21.

  Levy took note of a resolution approved by delegates to the Texas AFL-CIO COPE Convention calling for independent political participation.

  “This endorsement list seeks a pro-worker agenda and nothing else. It includes Democrats and Republicans,” Levy said. “For the first time, based on action by the Gulf Coast Area Labor Federation, our list specifically calls for opposition to two Democratic candidates who were connected to a lawsuit in Houston that undermined the rights of immigrant janitors to speak up together for a better workplace.”

  “The Texas AFL-CIO COPE, joined with central labor bodies, affiliated unions, members, retirees, families and allies, will do everything in our power to give value to these endorsements.”
