Organized labor and United Way of America have had a relationship for 60+ years.
Our local United Way - United Way in Waukesha County - has had a formal relationship with the AFL-CIO for decades. Kurt Schmidt, member of Local DALU 2411, is employed by our local United Way as the AFL-CIO Community Services Liaison. He is one of more than 160 full-time state and local AFL-CIO Community Services Liaisons employed throughout the nation. The labor liaisons serve as links between their state federations, central labor councils, AFL-CIO affiliated unions, and their local Red Cross Chapters and United Ways.
