Our State Council will bring members and leaders together in advance of our work to help transform the political landscape in November 2020. ​ Each local union has one delegate to State Council, per the CFT Constitution, Article V, Section 3.

Between Conventions, the State Council makes decisions for the Federation. All locals may send delegates to State Council. It meets twice yearly. Policy positions discussed and voted on at meetings of the Division Councils may be ratified by the general membership at the State Council.

State Council also sits as the CFT Committee on Political Education, or COPE, and reviews ballot propositions and political candidates and their positions on issues. Through COPE, the CFT participates actively in the campaigns of endorsed candidates.
