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. 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 work out of a home-office in a location with ready access to a major city airport, preferably in Texas but negotiable. Current job responsibilities include representing members in Texas, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee (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.
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 annual salary is $68,000-$77,000 depending on experience. The job rate for the position is $81,500 per year. Regional 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 by January 2016. Persons who wish to apply for the Regional Organizer position should send their resumes by Friday, November 13, 2015 to:
