We have built a rank-and-file leadership structure called the Hotel Employees Action Team (H.E.A.T.) System. The purpose of the H.E.A.T. System is to increase the participation of the membership in the union and to greatly enhance the union’s ability to mobilize our members for large-scale action, in order to organize non-union workers, to fight for higher wages and better benefits, and to increase the rights of hotel workers.
We are seeking to hire a number of energetic, intelligent and dedicated individuals to work as Interns in support of these goals under the supervision and direction of a H.E.A.T. System Supervisor. They will have the opportunity to work directly with the union membership, learn internal union organizing first-hand, and gain exposure to a powerful and effective local labor union. We look to hire the best of the best and so are always accepting applications on a rolling basis for this position.
