United Way and Labor

For more than 80 years, organized Labor and United Way of the Capital Region have worked together to improve the quality of life in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties.

Our movement has a rich history and heritage: union members have served our community in times of natural disaster, financial hardship, illness, unemployment or other difficulties.

Additionally, community service workers and volunteers have provided direct assistance and support to such local organizations as United Way of the Capital Region, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and other many others.

How We Can Help

Rapid Response Program

The AFL-CIO community services liaison and the PA Department of Labor and Industry provide services to dislocated workers. Rapid response is an early intervention service that assists workers and employers affected by layoffs, plant closures or natural disasters in the Capital Region. The primary goal is to provide workers with the resources and services they need to allow them to find new jobs or get the training and education needed for new careers. There is no charge to the employer or employee for these services, and they are provided regardless of the reason for the layoff.
