In 1978, John J. Driscoll convened a statewide organized labor partnership to establish the United Labor Agency to meet human service needs of Connecticut's workers and their families.

As a community affiliate of the Connecticut AFL-CIO, 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, immigrant worker advocacy, workers’ rights, emergency food pantry services and a Drug and Alcohol Vocational Rehabilitation Program.

Programs include:

The ULA also provides emergency strike and lockout support for every union in the state.

United Labor Agency offices are located in Rocky Hill (central office), Hartford, Middletown, and Waterbury.
