Our work is on behalf of all Connecticut's working families, but our mission began with one man... John J. Driscoll
The United Labor Agency employs the AFL-CIO National Community Services model for the benefit of workers in Connecticut. This includes three major components: community mobilization, counseling, and employment. ULA develops and operates various specialized programs including client referral, client advocacy, emergency food pantry services and a Drug and Alcohol Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
Need may arise from a lay-off, a plant closing, a labor dispute or just personal events. Any worker with problems not related to their employment can be helped by our Community Services personnel. Any worker losing a job or unable to still perform a job
The United Labor Agency, (ULA) was established by the Connecticut AFL-CIO to meet the human service needs of workers and their families. Our primary goal is to assist union members and all workers in handling problems and difficulties arising off the job
