United Way Labour Partnership

Working together to strengthen communities across British Columbia.

United Way and the Canadian Labour Congress have been partners since 1988, ensuring workers and working families can access social and public services that are accessible, universal and of the highest quality right in their community.  

Unions across British Columbia are longstanding and generous contributors to United Way campaigns, encouraging members to volunteer and give. But the partnership goes much deeper than just financial support.   

Labour representatives volunteer with United Way as members of the United Way Board of Directors Labour CommitteeCampaign Cabinet Committee, and the Campaign Cabinet Labour Committee, where they help United Way BC identify and support champions for our work in the labour movement, build stronger relationships with unions across the movement, and co-develop strategies that strengthen our collective impact in community. .
