The ALEU lobbying efforts focus solely on issues of interest to public service employees and their families. ALEU works with other AFL-CIO labor organizations at the state capital to ensure that the concerns of its members are addressed in the political arena. Legislative meetings are also conducted to educate members on legislative issues. also The IUPA lobbying efforts focus solely on issues of interest to law enforcement and their families. The IUPA works with Congressional Staff to draft legislation of importance to law enforcement (e.g., armor vest grants, collective bargaining, educational benefits) and to push for passage of legislation such as the Police Officer's Bill of Rights, Law Enforcement Officer's Record's Privacy Act, and FLSA Protections. Our legislative program works full time on issues of importance to law enforcement because our membership consists solely of law enforcement officers. In addition to our full time Vice President Legislative Liaison, we have a highly regarded and well known Washington, D.C. law firm on retainer as legislative counsel.
