Message from President Shuler
We’re seeing and feeling the impacts of climate change all across the country— wildfires, heat waves, hurricanes and flooding. The transition to a clean energy future, with good union jobs, is urgent. That’s why we need to build a modern, resilient labor movement that can meet the challenges of the climate crisis. We’ve shown what we can accomplish when we stick together. Now, workers and communities across the country are looking to the labor movement—not just to rebuild, but to build back better with unions.

We’re building a modern labor movement. We’re innovating union growth, organizing power, and moving to reform labor laws so we can balance the economic scales and lift up all working people.
But to do that, we need democracy in the U.S. Senate. And that means passing labor law reform, voter protection legislation and the Build Back Better investment agenda with a simple 50-vote majority.
I hope your Labor Day was safe and enjoyable. Thank you for the work you’ve done and the work you’re doing right now.
President Shuler Joins Event at the White House
Wednesday, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler attended an event at the White House to honor the labor movement. At the event, President Joe Biden spoke about the importance of passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. He said the role of government should be to “remove barriers to workers organizing,” and that it should be up to workers—not employers—to decide whether we want to belong to a union. 

"It’s the labor movement that will lead the transformation. We are innovating and fighting for what will be the next weekend. And with the game-changing leadership of the Biden–Harris administration, we will build back better with unions. To win an America where every working person has the right to a good, sustainable union job. And with it, access to an expansive, new American middle class. The labor movement is open for business. And we’re just getting started." - AFL-CIO President, Liz Shuler

Write Your Senators: Pass the PRO Act
We’re taking action this week to support workers! The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act empowers working people to join and form unions. Write a letter to your senators and tell them to pass the PRO Act!

Throughout the pandemic, working people kept our communities running.
The nurses caring for sick patients, the teachers ensuring their students are still learning, the grocery store workers making sure we can still eat.
After the Labor Day holiday, we owe working people more than gratitude—we need action.
That’s why we need to pass the PRO Act. It will improve the lives of all working people.

In Solidarity,
Nation's Mayors Support the PRO Act
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, who leads the United States Conference of Mayors announced on Twitter that the Conference passed a resolution in support of the PRO Act, the largest pro-worker piece of legislation since the Great Depression.
“I'm very proud that the @usmayors has endorsed the #PROAct! I grew up in a union family, so I know how important it is that we support working families and protect the right to organize,” said Mayor Whaley.
AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler was quick to respond with a statement on the endorsement.
"The nation’s mayors have called for passage of the PRO Act, and now it is time for the senators in Washington to listen. Today’s resolution sends a clear message to Congress—the PRO Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act, have widespread national support and must become the law of the land. Building back better starts with enacting the PRO Act’s commonsense workplace safety protections, expanding collective bargaining, ensuring gender and racial equality on the job, and enhancing penalties for employers who violate our rights. I applaud the mayors’ conference for its steadfast commitment to giving working families a chance to level the playing field in our economy. The next vote to pass the PRO Act should be in the U.S. Senate," said President Shuler.
The resolution was co-sponsored by Regina Romero (Tucson, AZ), Kim Janey (Boston, MA), Lori E. Lightfoot (Chicago, IL) Nan Whaley (Dayton, OH), Lauren Poe (Gainesville, FL), Eric Genrich (Green Bay, WI), Luke Bronin (Hartford, CT), Eric Garcetti (Los Angeles, CA), Bill de Blasio (New York, NY), Kate Gallego (Phoenix, AZ), Todd Gloria (San Diego, CA), Jenny A. Durkan (Seattle, WA), Tishaura O. Jones (St. Louis, MO), Corey Woods (Tempe, AZ), Martha Guerrero (West Sacramento, CA).

California Recall Campaign - Urgent Action
Sisters and Brothers,

I hope you will join me next Monday and Tuesday to help turn out the labor vote to stop the anti-Union recall in California.

The California recall is funded by anti-union millionaires and special interests that want to roll back decades of progress on workers’ rights. These extreme backers are funneling millions of dollars into the recall campaign to weaken or eliminate laws that protect worker pay, health care, retirement and safety on the job. The recall isn’t just about Governor Newsom, it’s is a sneak attack on our jobs, wages, benefits and union.

That's why we need you to volunteer to phone bank to encourage California union members to oppose this anti-union recall. Click here to volunteer to call Monday, Sept. 13 or Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Let me be clear: the backers of this recall are anti-union special interests. These corporate extremists funding the recall have spent tens of millions of dollars attacking unions and our agenda to protect workers. The anti-union recall backers want to lower wages, eliminate health and safety laws and kill union jobs. This recall is nothing but a sneak attack on jobs, wages, benefits and unions.

In Solidarity,
Tim Burga, President
What "Building Back Better" Means
The House of Representatives has passed a historic budget resolution to put muscle behind President Joe Biden’s “build back better” agenda. The plan is designed to help our country fight COVID-19, boost our economy, expand the child tax credit, establish universal pre-K, make college more affordable and accessible, expand Medicare benefits for seniors, and more. This plan is an incredible step forward, but there are still things that need to be added. Congress must hear from us to get this done.

Building back better means continuing the momentum we started with the American Rescue Plan, putting resources where we need them most. By scrapping the SALT cap, we’d ensure that communities investing in the public services we depend on aren’t penalized for doing so. By redefining free community college by including two years at a state college, we’d give thousands of students the chance to pursue their dreams. By investing in school infrastructure, we’d be building safe and welcoming environments for millions of students to learn and thrive—not to mention creating thousands of well-paying union jobs to make those upgrades.

Building back better means making a commitment to working families that every person, regardless of geography or demography, can have a high-quality education, starting with universal pre-K and extending through free community college. It means expanding healthcare options for working families, so that healthcare can truly be a right and not a privilege.

Building back better means thinking about and planning for our future by investing in green infrastructure and modern technology, in broadband internet access for all. It means investing in job trainings so we can help people pursue their dreams and meet the needs of our growing and modernizing economy.

In unity,

Randi Weingarten

AFT Offers Disaster Relief to Members Impacted by Hurricane Ida
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is helping members affected by Hurricane Ida with its disaster relief fund. Click here to contribute. “Even as the storm rolled through Louisiana, hospitals stayed open, with nurses putting their own safety on the line to care for their patients as COVID-19 continued to ravage the area,” said AFT President Randi Weingarten. She continued: “Hurricane Ida is the most recent and upsetting reminder of how climate change is affecting our communities and causing more extreme weather. Fighting for solutions to the climate crisis is something we’re committed to, both in and out of the classroom.” The Louisiana AFL-CIO is also providing relief to affected union members. Checks can be made out to: Louisiana AFL-CIO Disaster Relief Fund, 429 Government St., Baton Rouge, LA 70802.
Unions Celebrate Labor Across The State
Labor Day was celebrated in cities and towns across Ohio with events sponsored and supported by AFL-CIO local central councils and unions.
Starting on Saturday with parades in Portsmouth and Marietta and a rally in Cleveland, local communities came together to honor the hard work of all those who continue to wake up each day and put their shift in to keep America moving.
Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga was in Mansfield on Labor Day for their parade while Secretary-Treasurer Melissa Cropper joined Congressman Tim Ryan in Newark to walk the parade route.
"This Labor Day, as we recognized and celebrated working people, it comes as no surprise that public support for unions continues to rise across the country. Union members have delivered for our communities throughout the country, as workers have finally been recognized as essential to our economy and society during the coronavirus pandemic," said Burga. "I was proud to represent with my union sisters and brothers in Mansfield and salute the community support and show of unity on display across our great state."
Union-sponsored Labor Day events were held in: Cleveland, Portsmouth, Marietta, Akon, Toledo, Lima, Mansfield, Steubenville, Newark and Barberton.
BWC Annual Memorial Service Honors Ohio's Fallen Workers
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) held its annual Fallen Workers’ Memorial service on Thursday, Sept. 2. The event honors those who lost their lives as a result of a workplace injury or illness. Ohio AFL-CIO President was in attendance and said in his remarks:
"As we continue the struggle to get on the other side of the COVID pandemic, we are reminded every day of the essential nature and value of our workforce. Working people have answered the call of the Coronavirus Pandemic every day, and in every way. We’ve served. We’ve sacrificed. We’ve healed. We’ve honored the country we love, the country we built.
"It is working people that move our state forward and hold the key to our economic growth and future success. Today, we offer our prayers and condolences to the families of the fallen as we call on those in power to strengthen the binds of the mutual commitment to safe jobs for all and the guarantee of care and benefits to those in need.
"As a third-generation steelworker and grandson of a coal miner, my family, like so many others, know the dangers and risks associated with Ohio’s blue-collar heritage in the mines, factories, farms and construction sites. The legacy of our industrial boom and the struggle for safe jobs and a first-class workers’ compensation system is to be revered and protected, while recognizing the need to innovate and improve as our work and society evolves."

Center for American Progress: Unions Help Narrow the Racial Wealth Gap
Union membership helps to significantly narrow the racial wealth gap in our country, according to new research from the Center for American Progress (CAP). CAP’s data shows that median household wealth is five times higher for Hispanic union households than Hispanic nonunion households. Similarly, Black union households have more than three times the median wealth of Black nonunion households. The report concluded: “All told, unions have a significant impact on the financial stability of workers. This new analysis provides additional evidence that policymakers must take steps to strengthen unions in order to narrow the racial wealth gap and increase the economic power of the working class.” Click here to watch the video explaining this new research.
Approval of Labor Unions at Highest Point Since 1965
According to the latest Gallup poll, an overwhelming 68% of Americans approve of labor unions. The current union support data is the highest Gallup has measured since 71% in 1965.
Gallup has measured the public's rating of labor unions periodically beginning in 1936 and then annually since 2001 with more Americans expressing approval than disapproval in every reading.
Between 1936 and 1967, approval averaged 68% and included record-high 75% approval ratings in 1953 and 1957. Then, from 1972 through 2016, support eased, with few readings over 60%. Since 2016, approval has steadily increased and is now 20 percentage points above the historical low.
The current results are from Gallup's annual Work and Education poll conducted Aug. 2-17, 2021.
Approval has increased among nearly all major demographic subgroups since 2016. A good sign for unions moving forward is the high approval rating among young adults aged 18-34 (77%) and those with annual household incomes under $40,000 (72%).
Union support is also being realized across political parties with a vast majority of Democrats, and Independents and half of all Republicans approving of organized labor. Approval among Democrats, which is nearly unanimous, is buoyed by the actions and proposals of President Joe Biden who maintains his administration will be one of the most pro-union in history.

Join us Today for Virtual Discussion with Senator Sherrod Brown & Ohio Parents On the Child Tax Credit

For Our Future Ohio Education Fund is hosting a virtual panel with Senator Sherrod Brown to discuss the Child Tax Credit with Ohio parents. Senator Brown will speak with panelists about their experiences and the importance of the Child Tax Credit, and the importance of passing the Child Tax Credit expansion as part of the Build Back Better Agenda.

The Child Tax Credit went into effect within the American Rescue Plan earlier this year. However, without the Build Back Better Agenda passing Congress, the Child Tax Credit’s benefits in the American Rescue Plan will expire at the end of the year, and nearly 2.1 million children in Ohio will no longer benefit from the Child Tax Credit.

I hope to see you there,

Kobie D. Christian
Communications Director, For Our Future Ohio
Registration Opens for 2021 Union Co-op Symposium!
We're very excited for our 2021 Union Co-op Symposium, which is scheduled for Nov. 12 and 13.

Register today for the Symposium, a conference bringing together people interested in practical tools on how to start and run union worker cooperatives! 

Executive Director Kristen Barker at a panel during a past Symposium.

Why union worker cooperatives?

Across the world, communities are increasingly rejecting unsustainable patterns of economic development for innovative alternatives, including the union co-op model. This model joins the best tenets of the labor movement with opportunities for sustainable wealth-building and self-determination. As a result, it fosters wealth in communities historically excluded from the ownership economy. 

The Union Co-op Symposium is the only gathering of its kind

We will bring together social entrepreneurs, labor organizers, co-op workers, community development practitioners, and others with a vested interest in equitable economic development. Our 2-day gathering will provide community-building opportunities and workable strategies for forming, running, and nurturing union worker cooperatives.

Regatta Results, Prize Winners and A Lot Of Gratitude
Our generous community never ceases to amaze me. Our 27th annual Rubber Duck Regatta was a huge success!

That’s over 3 million meals!

We’re so grateful for the support from all our donors, volunteers and sponsors. It takes everyone coming together to have this huge of an impact on tristate kids in need.
The Regatta may be an annual event, but our fight against hunger is year-round.

Thank you for your life-changing support of families in our community.

With sincere gratitude,

What Matters
Most To You?
When you think of community, what are you passionate about?

Community is defined as a collective of shared concerns or passions. At United Way of Greater Cincinnati, we believe all families deserve economic well-being so we have a stronger, more resilient community.

Tell us what you care about and we will send you relevant information, stories and various ways to get involved.
Quality education is an important building block for long-term financial success. From in-home support for young families to quality preschool opportunities to workforce development, education elevates a community and maximizes its potential.
Everyone within a community should have the opportunity to thrive. Until the most basic needs are met, such as food and housing, families don’t have the essential foundation they need to gain economic mobility.
A healthy community is a resilient community. We promote healthy eating and physical activity, mental health and addiction services and integrating health into early childhood development.
United Way ran a direct-relief program for Hamilton County residents facing financial challenges due to COVID-19. Nearly 4,000 people received a total of $160,000 in gift cards to purchase food
In 2020, the Northern Kentucky Digital Equity Initiative mobilized $372,000 from individual, foundation and corporate investors to connect 3,700 students across 16 school districts with internet access
United Way of Greater Cincinnati's 211 helpline fielded more than 132,400 requests for services. The top requests were related to housing, food, rent and other financial resources.
Medicare Resources
Medicare Can Save Your Company Money

Are you searching for health care savings for your company? The answer may be Medicare. When Medicare-eligible employees transition from employer coverage to Medicare, their health care costs transition as well. The average annual savings in premiums alone is $6,227* per employee, potentially more if the employee is on a family plan or if your company is self-insured. Join us for one of these webinars to learn how to optimize health care costs with Medicare.
