PROTEC17 has recently strengthened its organizing of new and present members – our current small-but-mighty organizing staff accounted for half of all organizing petitions before the state’s public employment commission last year. To further expand this work, PROTEC17 is seeking to add another enthusiastic, creative, and committed organizer to our team.
Our organizers are responsible for developing and executing campaigns across the full spectrum of union activity. Work will include new unit organizing, accretions to existing units, member mobilization, political action, leadership identification and development, and signing up new members. The overarching goal is building member density and power. Candidates will be expected to have experience and applicable skills in these areas, or an ability to rapidly become proficient.
Candidates are also expected to demonstrate the following:
ABILITIES AND COMMITMENTS
· Commitment to advancing racial equity, which the organization set as a core priority in its 2020-2022 strategic plan.

PROTEC17 is a nonprofit labor organization that represents more than 9,000 professional, technical, managerial and administrative public employees who serve the people of Washington and Oregon.

PROTEC17’s culture and organization allow us to meet members’ interests while also maintaining a good work-life balance. PROTEC17 members are fantastic, community-oriented people and it’s a wonderful, collegial place to work.
