Union Organizer-in-Training (OIT) / National Airports Campaign

Phoenix, Arizona



We are seeking energetic and passionate individuals interested in starting social justice

careers in labor organizing.


For 100 years, SEIU has been helping workers stand up for their rights, fighting for dignity,

respect and better conditions in workplaces and communities. With a membership 2.1 million

strong, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in the United States and our diverse leaders and staff

support workers as they speak out for good jobs and better lives for themselves and their

families.


The SEIU Organizer-in-Training (OIT) Program is a 12-month training program. As an Organizer-

in-Training with the SEIU, you will be assigned to organizing campaigns, trained in the

fundamentals of union organizing, and will have the opportunity to learn the skills needed to

help workers build power in the workplace.

The OIT program trains labor organizers to assist and empower non-union workers to join

unions and is different from other training programs that focus on developing political,

electoral or community organizing skills.


Key Responsibilities:

? Conducting broad and intensive outreach efforts to non-union workers.

? Building one-on-one relationships with workers.

? Identifying, recruiting, and developing worker leaders.

? Conducting individual and group meetings with workers to move organizing campaigns

forward.

? Engaging, motivating, and mobilizing workers to act in support of their organizing

campaigns.

? Planning and carrying out actions and events to support worker organizing efforts.

Required Qualifications:

? Demonstrated commitment to social and economic justice.

? Ability and willingness to work long and irregular hours, including nights and weekends.

? Excellent listening, oral and written communication skills.

? Basic computer literacy and ability to learn the organization’s technology tools.

? Ability to work independently as well as with a team.

? Willingness to conduct work site and home visits.

? Strong planning, time-management, and problem-solving skills.

? Willingness to work with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

? Possession of a valid U.S. driver’s license, proof of auto insurance, and an automobile for

business use.

? Ability and willingness to travel, as needed. If offered an Organizer-in-Training position,

you will be required to relocate to the Phoenix, Arizona metro area if you currently do

not reside there. Relocation costs are not covered by SEIU.

? Verbal fluency in English/Spanish or English/ Amharic is a plus, but not required.

? COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIREMENT: Candidates will be required to show proof on

being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 upon commencing employment with the SEIU.

Reasonable accommodation will be considered on a case-by-case basis for either a) a

certain medical condition(s); or b) based on sincerely held strong religious beliefs and

practices.

Compensation:

? Salary and benefits are set by a collective bargaining agreement. The salary is

$50,000/annual and benefits include fully employer-paid health benefits package,

$570/month car allowance, $60/month cell phone allowance, and other benefits

outlined in the policies of SEIU and the staff union contract. This is a full-time, salaried,

over-time exempt position.

Application Requirements:

A resume and cover letter are required for all applications. Your cover letter should explain

your reason for wanting to work for SEIU, an example of how you demonstrated success in a

similar position, and a description of how this position fits into your long-term career plan.
