Partnership Between United Way and Organized Labor
Since 1946, the AFL-CIO and United Way Worldwide have enjoyed a cooperative relationship through which they and local United Ways provide services to members of organized labor, their families, and their communities. This partnership has positively impacted hundreds of local families.
Our AFL-CIO Community Service Liaison helps local union members become involved in the United Way fundraising campaign in several important ways:
- Solicit and share annual letters of endorsement from AFL-CIO affiliated unions and national and state federations.
- Make workplace and union hall presentations to union members.
- Write letter to unions encouraging a treasury gift and their support of the campaign with their members.
- Update the White River Central Labor Council on United Way programs, initiatives, and impacts.
If you are a union member and are interested in learning more United Way, please contact AFL-CIO Community Services Liaison Liz Feitl.
