    "Federal workers are proving that they never quit despite not getting paid," said Hawaici AFL-CIO President Randy Perreira. "The Union community and the Hawaiʻi Foodbanks are working to help get the workers through this financial crisis. We (demand)urge our elected leaders in Washington, D.C. to stop the government shutdown."

  • Our community service committee strengthens our community by promoting volunteerism and promoting a sense of responsibility by organizing various service projects.
  • We are a safety net for union members. We are a one stop source of information and services especially tailored to union members.
  • We conduct workshops that help prepare union members for changes at home and the workplace.
