UNITE HERE is a progressive labor union, representing approximately 500,000 workers in the hotel, restaurant, textile, laundry, gaming and food service industries in North America. These industries employ large numbers of women, recent immigrants and people of color. UNITE HERE is committed to raising the living standards of these workers who do some of the most “invisible” work in North America.
Innovative organizing campaigns and a strong training program make UNITE HERE an exciting place to create change and empower disenfranchised workers in the service industries. UNITE HERE’s goal is not only to organize non-union workers and win campaigns but also to train effective new labor leaders and organizers who can develop creative and strategic campaigns and change the economic balance of power in North America.
If you are committed to social and economic justice and want to help workers gain power, apply today for our training program.
UNITE HERE will host a specialized 2 Day Organizer Training on April 20th and 21st in Phoenix, AZ to teach and evaluate basic organizing skills. Participants will learn and be evaluated on identifying and recruiting workplace leaders leading to a 12 week apprenticeship for potential hire in worker organizing or community organizing.
People of color and bilingual speakers are highly encouraged to apply.
