Year Round Organizers


Prince George’s County continues to experience an educator shortage, with approximately 1000 + vacancies or a 10% loss of educators in our schools. We are seeing increased workloads, burnout, and attrition, compounding adversity at our already challenged, fledgling community schools. PGCEA recognizes one of the best recruitment and retention tools is a firm contract and a supportive working environment.

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. Doing this through targeted one-on-one conversations with trained member organizers is key.

PGCEA is hiring Year Round Organizers!

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.

Participants will work 5-10 hours per week including afternoons and weekends to receive a stipend for the 10-month program. To apply, you must be a dues-paying member and have a vehicle, cell phone, and laptop available to use for the duration of the program.

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.
