POSITION AVAILABLE: UNION ORGANIZER
UNITE HERE Local 217 - Connecticut
In this time of economic crisis, be a part of a movement of low wage workers that is confronting corporate greed and mistreatment of workers, raising the standards of service sector jobs, and winning dignity and respect on the job through solidarity and action.
UNITE HERE Local 217 in Connecticut is seeking an entry level or experienced organizer to work locally on aggressive North American campaigns. Organizers work with members and unorganized workers to build the leadership and solidarity necessary to build a progressive and strong labor union.
UNITE HERE is a progressive labor union, representing more than 250,000 workers in the hotel, food service, and gaming industries in North America. These industries employ large numbers of women, recent immigrants and people of color.
Innovative organizing campaigns, deep rank-and-file member engagement and leadership development, and our strong training program make UNITE HERE an exciting place to create change and build power with workers in these industries in the US and Canada.
UNITE HERE’s goal is to not only organize non-union workers and win campaigns, but also to train effective progressive labor leaders and organizers who can develop creative and strategic campaigns to change the economic balance of power in North America.
People of color strongly encouraged to apply.
