Union Counseling Program

Members of the Union Counseling class holding the Labor banner

The Southeastern Connecticut Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO and United Way team up to sponsor Union Community Action Network Training - UCAN. As part of this four-session program, labor volunteers are trained on the information and skills needed to refer co-workers, family members and neighbors to existing social services.

Highlights of this valuable training include:

  • Developing a stronger Union referral link
  • Learning about United Way's network of community agencies
  • Forming alliances that strengthen the labor movement
  • Understanding the power of community involvement
  • Building a more caring community!
