2022 United Way Endorsement

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Our partnership with the United Way goes back to World War II. Throughout this time, UAW members have supported the work of the United Way through worksite giving campaigns and volunteerism. Likewise, the United Way has supported UAW members during challenging times.

The United Way has assisted UAW members during strikes with food assistance, rent and mortgage assistance, utility payment assistance, and more. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Way provided food and rent assistance, opened shelters for front-line workers to prevent the virus's possible spread to their families, and was instrumental in helping UAW members navigate the often confusing and difficult unemployment process. The United Way also created a fund to provide financial aid to 67 UAW members impacted by the Colfor Manufacturing Fire and offered financial assistance to the 300 UAW members who were locked out of Collins Aerospace. These are just some examples of how the United Way has supported UAW members in recent years, in addition to all the work they do to support people in communities across our country every day.

Everyone deserves to live in vibrant communities with functioning social services and other resources. Your support enables the United Way to help strengthen the communities in which we live.
The UAW proudly endorses the work of the United Way and its worksite giving campaigns. I strongly encourage you to support this great organization as they continue serving our communities.

                                                                                    In solidarity,
                                                                             Ray Curry, President
                                                                             International Union, UAW
