United Way and the Canadian Labour Congress have been partners since 1988 – both having a common vision for strong, healthy and prosperous communities offering a wide range of accessible, universal and high-quality social and public services. Labour acknowledges the important role of volunteers in creating these communities and United Way recognizes the need for fully funded and staffed public services.
At United Way Halton & Hamilton (UWHH) our Labour Programs & Services Representatives work with labour to engage community. The Labour Staff honour the ongoing strong partnership between Labour and UWHH, with the Oakville & District Labour Council and Hamilton & District Labour council.
Unions across Canada are longstanding and generous contributors to United Way campaigns by encouraging members to volunteer and give. This important partnership goes much deeper than just financial support, Labour representatives advocate for those in need in their communities, they serve on United Way boards and committees, and offer programs like cooperative housing, childcare and other services.
