UNITE HERE 2 Day Organizer Trainings

UNITE HERE (http://www.unitehere.org) is leading the fight to organize hundreds of thousands of low-wage workers in hotels, casinos, industrial laundries, and airports throughout North America. Our union, with over 450,000 members, is at the forefront of battles for workers’ rights, immigrants’ rights and living wages. UNITE HERE organizes the invisible members of our society: the women, people of color and immigrants washing dishes, making beds and folding laundry. We are looking for passionate and committed people who want to become full-time union organizers.

UNITE HERE will host a 2 Day Organizer Training April 21-22 in Philadelphia and May 5-6 in New Haven, CT to teach basic organizing skills. After training, recommended participants will be placed on live campaigns in a 6 to 12 week paid apprenticeship for potential hire.

Requirements: desire to fight for justice and organize the unorganized. Bilingual English/Spanish a plus.
