The National Organization of Legal Services Workers (NOLSW/UAW Local 2320) is receiving applications for a vacant Organizer position to service members in the Midwest region of the Union. The membership consists of attorneys, paralegals and support staff employees in civil legal services programs, and a variety of counselors, teachers, and other workers in human services programs. The job description for the position is attached.
Candidates should be prepared for extensive travel on a flexible work schedule. They would be expected to live in the Chicago metropolitan area and work from the Union office in Chicago with one other Organizer, from which they would service members in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and Oklahoma (the territorial assignments are subject to change). NOLSW Organizers are expected to have a UAW-made car, and are expected to drive to service the members.
Qualifications: Current UAW members are preferred. Candidates would be expected to begin negotiating, servicing and organizing with a minimum of orientation and training. License to practice law is a “plus” but is not required. Prior union experience in bargaining and organizing is preferred.
Once hired, the new Organizer serves a probation period of one year.
Starting Salary (during one year probation period): $76,500
Non-Probationary Salary (Job Rate): $81,500
NOLSW organizers receive employer contributions to a 401(k) retirement plan, a defined benefit pension plan, Union-paid health, dental and vision insurance, and a weekly expense allowance to assist in maintenance of a car.
NOLSW/UAW hopes to fill this position as soon as possible, but no later than March 1, 2014.
