A Political Action Committee – PAC – is an account set up to pool money for use in the political process. Labor unions, along with corporations like The Boeing Company and Spirit AeroSystems, cannot make direct contributions to candidates or elections. However, they can set up PACs that can collect and pool money contributed by individuals.
The IFPTE LEAP-PAC collects and pools money from union members in IFPTE local unions. That money can then be used to support candidates.
- All contributions are voluntary.
- No dues money is used.
- Payroll deduction is from the first paycheck of the month.
- IFPTE LEAP-PAC supports candidates who support the issues important to IFPTE members.
- The IFPTE Executive Council, including three SPEEA vice presidents, oversees and distributes funds.
