We must position ourselves to continue to build on our effectiveness at the bargaining table by increasing our density, capacity, and solidarity through member organizing. Half of our 206 worksites are community schools. Focusing our work on the 109 community schools in our county will provide crucial information and awareness about community schools while fortifying our membership. Doing this through targeted one-on-one conversations with trained member organizers is key.
Applicants should be passionate about racial, social, and economic justice, detail-oriented, committed to the labor movement, and willing to have conversations about the importance of union membership.
No prior union experience is necessary. Organizers will be trained on the basics of power and organizing – how to effectively communicate and mobilize peers to win and implement a meaningful contract.
Organizers for 2023 will work through SY23/24.
Organizers must be available to work up to 20 hours per week through July and August.
We need members who will be available to canvass 3 days to non-members over the summer months, assist with PEIP, and attend monthly training and regional meetings with non-members throughout the year.
Organizers will receive train-the-trainer and collaborative supportive groups.
Organizers must have a personal laptop and phone they are willing to use for organizing purposes.
