Union Organizer - New Organizing
The New England Health Care Employees Union, District 1199/SEIU is looking for smart, motivated individuals who want to help workers fight for better working conditions, dignity on the job, and improvements in health care for all working families.
Often called "my favorite union" by Martin Luther King Jr., District 1199 is a bold, democratic labor organization with a long activist tradition. Over the past 25 years, we have used strategic campaigns and direct action to form unions, win significant victories for employees, and demand improvements for sick, elderly, and needy patients in nursing homes, state direct care and mental health facilities, hospitals and other health care centers.
We are the largest health care union in New England with 22,000 members, including nurses, nursing assistants, dietary workers, and housekeepers. The majority of our members and staff are women, people of color, and/or immigrants. We are also affiliated with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) -- the largest and fastest-growing labor union in the country.
Union Organizers on the New Organizing team help workers develop and run campaigns to form a union at the workplace, often against significant opposition from management and corporate owners.
Salary dependent on experience; includes medical benefits, pension, and paid vacation time.
