UFF Organizing Fellows Application: Summer 2022
UFF with the support of NEA and AFT has created a very effective organizing program which we call the UFF Organizing Fellows Program. This program is designed to support our member engagement efforts at the local level through one-on-one conversations, small and large group meetings with members and potential members, leadership identification and development, and increased activism. This program capitalizes on our most valuable resource—members—to help build union power and activism.

Our members’ ability to draw from personal work and UFF and UFF-GAU experience to engage current members and activate potential members is invaluable. Through this program, union members are trained and work as part-time paid organizers to help increase capacity in their chapters. The program seeks to foster a culture of organizing, member engagement and accountability among member organizers, staff, and leadership.

Participants must:
Be current members of their chapter in good standing.
Submit an application and attend an on-line interview.
Be willing to commit to the full term of the program and work a minimum of 5 hours per week.
Be willing to participate in training, team work and debriefs.
Be willing to track conversations and department visits in a database or spreadsheet.
Be willing to challenge themselves and others.
Be willing to engage with colleagues and other workers via remote contact -- phone conversations, small
       group on-line sessions, texts and social media outreach.

Summer 2022 Participants will be required to:

1) Attend 2 1/2 hour training before beginning paid work
2) Work some evenings and weekends, if needed.

Compensation: $20/hour, 10 hours per week.

Contract Length: May 23rd- August 31st (15 weeks)

There is no union contract for this position, nor benefits, as it is a supplement short-term organizing program. It is expected and required that all Fellows will be in the bargaining unit and obtaining union and health care benefits through their employment on campus.
