2023 Blue Collar Christmas

Following the launch of the Blue Collar Christmas events in 2022 on Kauai and Hawaii, UPW expanded and brought holiday cheer to foster children on all four major islands in 2023. In partnership with Catholic Charities of Hawaii, UPW members and volunteers helped organize arts and crafts activities, photo booths, and food and snacks for the children and their families. Generous donors across the state provided gifts ensuring every keiki went home with their hands full.

Section 8

A Union is founded upon the idea of fairness in the workplace. Its strength is built one member at a time. Standing in solidarity, the power of those members creates a contract, one clause at a time.
