Labor Partnership

Diverse Union workers



United Way has had a longstanding partnership with AFL-CIO to tackle critical issues in the Quad Cities. In fact, two members on the United Way Board of Directors represent organized labor in the Quad Cities.

Our unique collaboration ensures the Quad Cities has the resources to break barriers, creating opportunities for a better life for all.

Much like organized labor, United Way focuses on education, financial stability and health because these are the building blocks for a good quality of life.

Our Programs

The National Association of Letter Carriers' (NALC) one-day Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive returns on May 13. We are proud to partner with the NALC and River Bend Foodbank once again for this effort, 30+ years in the making.

Gather alongside River Bend Food Bank, United Way QC and our friends in organized labor to help collect nonperishable food for members of the Quad City community.

Gather together with fellow labor organizations to celebrate the work of Labor Unions and promoting education, income and health stability for each person in our community. 

Union leaders and employees change the lives of those in our community through their donations.
