FlightPAC is a part of CWA’s Committee on Political Education (COPE), AFA’s Political Action Committee. Election law prohibits labor organizations from using treasury dues to make contributions and expenditures in connection with federal elections. Dues from our members are never contributed to campaigns. Violations of campaign finance laws can result in civil penalties, therefore it is important for AFA-CWA leaders and Government Affairs Committee members to understand and observe the laws and rules which govern PAC’s and political activity. FlightPAC allows members the opportunity to make voluntary contributions to provide financial support to federal candidates to federal office who are committed to helping us accomplish our legislative goals.
