The Union for Advocates

The National Organization of Legal Services Workers (NOLSW), UAW Local 2320, AFL-CIO is the union representing the majority of those who work in federally-funded legal services programs across the USA. We also represent workers in other types of law offices and in various human services programs.

What's New at UAW 2320

The NOLSW National Joint Council (NJC) meeting is set for June 26 to June 29, 2016.  It will again take place at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. 

This is an important time for us!  This year the NJC falls just five months before the general election. We must stand organized and united. The NJC will include plenary sessions with speakers, workshops on union related topics, our important business meeting and our banquet. This year the NJC has been shortened from four days to three and will run from Sunday through noon Wednesday. The national union will still be subsidizing one delegate from each unit and we encourage each unit to send as many members as they can.

In the near future, you will be receiving more information regarding costs, registrations and logistics.  So for now, mark your calendars, schedule your vacation and make preparations to send a delegation to represent your unit at the NJC.


Please be advised that National Organization of Legal Services Workers (NOLSW/UAW Local 2320) is receiving applications for a vacant Organizer position to service members in the Southwest/Southeast regions of the Union. The membership to be served consists primarily of attorneys, paralegals and support staff employees in civil legal services programs in right-to-work states.

Candidates should be prepared for extensive travel on a flexible work schedule.

NOLSW Organizers are expected to have a UAW-made car, and are expected to drive to service the members when practical.

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.
