SEATTLE (Aug. 7, 2019) — Thanks to strong support from our community, the Washington State Legislature has provided ongoing support through the coming biennium for an expanded Washington State Labor Education and Research Center. This funding will allow the Labor Center provide more training, and to conduct economic and policy research, on behalf of workers and union members statewide.

Please help the Labor Center find strong applicants for two key positions:

●  Labor Educator:  to design and conduct trainings, seminars, workshops and events for working people, unions, and community groups.

●  Labor Policy Researcher:  to conduct economic and policy research on behalf of Washington workers, labor and community organizations.

In order to carry forth the Labor Center’s education mission, the Labor Center particularly seeks candidates with history in our diverse community, and with fluency in more than one language. The Labor Center staff are employees of the South Seattle College; professional staff are represented by AFT-Seattle Professional Staff Local 6550.
