As close partners with the United Way Worldwide through the AFL-CIO and with the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County, the Labor Community Campaign is our opportunity as labor members to make a big difference in the community.
The Labor Kick-Off event for the campaign each September provides labor’s most distinguished community service award to a union member or group providing distinguished service.
Named in honor of an active labor and United Way leader, the Werner J. Schaefer Community Service Award is chosen by a local committee formed by AFL-CIO Community Services.
In 2018, the Milwaukee Area Labor Council and Waukesha County Labor Council were in the top 5 organizations to volunteer the most hours with the United Way.
