Labour Unions

Ensuring Workers Succeed

United Way and the Canadian Labour Congress have been partners since 1988, ensuring that workers and working families have the support they need to succeed. 

Unions across central and northern Vancouver Island are longstanding and generous contributors to United Way campaigns, encouraging members to donate, and volunteer.

The 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. 

In 2018, Canadian Labour Congress President Hassan Yussuff again endorsed the national partnership and our continued commitment to working together.
