Labor Support

United Way began partnering with labor unions following World War II.

Giving back is a union tradition with members of organized labor helping the children, families and individuals of our community for years. Whether it’s contributing time, skills or money, labor union members help to make a huge difference in San Antonio through its support of United Way.

San Antonio workplaces with a labor presence constitute 24 percent of United Way’s annual employee giving. These workplaces represent over 113,000 employees and 55,000 donors who contributed over $7.3 million to the 2010 United Way campaign.
