Please be advised that National Organization of Legal Services Workers (NOLSW/UAW Local 2320) is receiving applications for a Regional Organizer position to service members in the Northeast/Mid Atlantic region of the Union. The membership to be served consists primarily of attorneys, paralegals and support staff employees in civil legal services programs. The job description is attached.
Candidates should be prepared for extensive travel on a flexible work schedule. They would be expected to work out of a home-office in a location with access to a major city airport. Depending on where the person hired is based, responsibilities will include representing members in CT, MA, NY, NJ, PA or DE (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 when practical.
