Many workplaces than run fundraising campaigns are unionized. But the partnership goes deeper than just financial support.
Labour representatives volunteer with United Way Winnipeg as members of our Board of Trustees, our Campaign Cabinet Labour Engagement division, and as part of the CLC United Way Labour Community Advocates Program. United Way Winnipeg also has a Labour Director who works to connect to and reinforce awareness of Labour’s work in supporting critical social services through our annual fundraising campaign.
In 2012, the Canadian Labour Congress and United Way Centraide Canada signed a partnership agreement. We share a common vision of prosperous, inclusive, diverse and respectful communities.
Supporting those communities is a range of accessible social and public services of the highest quality—the kind you make possible when you support United Way Winnipeg.
We work together to motivate people to care about the root causes of social injustice, to influence public attitudes and policies, and to build people’s ability to deal with whatever comes their way, as a community.
Whether you need help in your personal life, from family counselling to mental health, or in your financial life, from strike support to food banks, there is a United Way Winnipeg donor-supported agency or service to help you!
