The Federation of Social Workers, along with two other IUE-CWA locals, are partnering with Flower City Habitat for Humanity, to build a home at 404 Orange Street. Members of the union locals will be volunteering three days a week to help construct the house. This project is called "Unions Giving Back" and is another example of how unions are committed to support their local communities.
