Organizer-In-Training

HTC is the union of hotel and gaming workers in New York and New Jersey. We are widely recognized as the most powerful union in this industry in the world, with the best contracts. Our largely immigrant membership enjoys a middle class lifestyle that is unheard of in an industry where workers are generally exploited and living in poverty. The children of our members have the opportunity to go to college and become professionals because of their parents’ hard work.

Unlike most unions, our membership is expanding, and in the last ten years our membership has grown from 25,000 to over 40,000. In state and local politics, we are famous for our clout and for “punching above our weight.” That’s because our membership loves their union and actively volunteers more than most union members. This is largely due to the fact that we are very serious about having an excellent, talented staff.

If you want to fight for and win social justice, this is the best place to do it. 

The Role:

If you have the skill-set to become an organizer and resolve to 

fight for working people, but lack previous experience in an

organizing role, this position is designed for you.

Organizers-In-Training work directly with the existing union 

membership. Each day as an Organizer-In-Training is exciting, 

challenging, and incredibly dynamic. You will travel to hotels and 

casinos throughout New York and New Jersey to communicate 

with union members and learn about the conditions affecting the 

workers we represent.

Organizers-In-Training are involved with political mobilization and 

turning out members for union events such as rallies, protests, 

political events, bill signings, and more.

Organizers-In-Training who distinguish themselves may be 

assigned to work on external organizing drives. HTC external 

organizers are the best of the best, and they work on highly 

secretive and strategic campaigns to bring non-union workers into 

our Union.

Advancement:

Applicants for this job need guts, passion and the will to succeed. Successful Organizers-In-Training can expect accelerated promotion to high leadership positions.

• Ability to motivate and inspire others;

• Ability to communicate respectfully and comfortably with people from diverse backgrounds;

• Resourcefulness and talent for problem-solving;

• Ability to learn quickly and grow into positions of greater responsibility;

• Persistence and determination;

• Loyal to the organization with a sense of integrity;

• Good judgment.

Extra consideration will be given for ANY of the following qualifications:

• Bachelor's degree;

• Bilingual (in addition to English), especially in Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Russian, Polish or Bengali;

• Strong computer skills and the ability to quickly learn new computer programs;

• Ability to write persuasively, clearly, and concisely;
