Dozens of local labor unions come together to support the Miami-Dade community
United Way of Miami-Dade celebrated with more than 50 organized labor partners at the Fifth Annual Labor Lives United Golf Tournament on Friday, June 26.
More than 30 teams participated in the golf tournament, including Labor Lives United co-chairs: Ellis Canty of International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1416; Al Lichtman of International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Local 1175; and Josh Zivalich of International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 769, among other union leaders. Team International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1922 took home first place with a score of 15 under par. Leading sponsors include, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 359 and International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local No. 769.
Since 1946, the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and United Way have enjoyed a partnership based on three key principles: 1) building capacity for the center labor council through trainings and personal development; 2) providing services to workers and their families, including unemployment assistance and counseling; 3) encouraging positive community change through personal involvement, giving, volunteering and advocating through United Way.
