The 2020 endorsement process was the major focus of the January DC Committee on Political Education (COPE) meeting last Thursday. The committee finalized the calendar for the endorsement process and adopted a Medicare for All resolution to be sent to the Executive Board next week for formal adoption. The endorsement process will begin with a 2020 Labor meeting for Metro Council affiliates this Thursday, January 16 at Teamsters Local 639 (3130 Ames Place NE, Washington, DC 20018), from 6:00- 8:00 pm. During that meeting, the committee will gather information about affiliate’s political priorities. The committee also plans to hold an education forum for aspiring candidates on Monday, February 3, at the AFL-CIO.
