2016 marks 75 years of our partnership with United Way, and we thereby celebrate with a “Labor of Love” commemorative logo on our journey of passionate community service together. Here is to 75 more years: United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County and Milwaukee Area Labor Council, AFL-CIO.
Created in the 1950s by the merger now known as the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor – Congress of Industrial Organizations), the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, AFL-CIO also contains the Milwaukee members of other federations such as Change to Win. Unions outside these federations are active supporters as are community, retiree and religious groups. So are non-union participants through such AFL-CIO initiatives as Working America. The breadth of our membership recognizes the importance of solidarity for all workers. MALC AFLCIO takes a leading role in charities, legislative work, politics and social action. Both our members and partnerships reflect that diversity and reach.
In 2003, the Milwaukee County Labor Council created Labor Community@Work, a tax-deductible way to support the charitable and community functions of the organization. Labor Community@Work is open for contributions from the entire community.
This 501(c)3 was meant to be a simple avenue to support charitable community advances. There is a separate board of directors that operates Labor Community@Work.
Tax-deductible charitable contributions for Labor Community@Work can be directed to specific campaigns or functions of that charitable division. Contributions can be addressed to LaborCommunity@Work, 633 S. Hawley Rd., Milwaukee, WI 53214 or given online.
