Need Help? Connect with a Labor Liaison

Since 1946, the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO and the United Way have joined forces to provide programs in their communities.  Following is a list of United Way Labor Liaisons, and each of them may know of local resources available during the government shutdown. These brothers and sisters are experts in Community Services and can assist labor unions with outreach and rapid response.

If you live in an area that is not represented by a Labor Liaison, please call United Way’s helpline 2-1-1 for access to local resources.
