Although UFF-FIU engages in political action to the extent allowed by law, federal law prevents us (or our parent organizations) from using funds collected from membership dues to directly aid candidates running for (or holding) public office.
However, the statewide UFF has established UFF-PAC, a political action committee which is funded with volunteer, non-dues contributions and which thereby is able to give contributions directly to candidates who are both friendly to higher education and labor.
UFF-PAC is a non-partisan political action committee. It gives contributions to Democrats, Republicans, and independents, based on UFF’s assessments of where our limited funds can be best spent. These decisions are ultimately accountable to the elected UFF leadership, including your local UFF-FIU Senators, and the UFF membership statewide.
