Help wanted

Position Available

Title: Executive Officer

Term: Six-Month Leave Replacement/Temporary

Start Date: August 1, 2018 (approximate)

Pacific Media Workers Guild, TNG-CWA LOCAL 39521, a San Francisco-based labor union affiliated with The NewsGuild-CWA, seeks a qualified individual to assume the duties of Executive Officer on a temporary basis. This opening arises due to the announced intention of our elected Executive Officer to take a six-month leave of absence.

This position requires administrative, budgeting and staff-management skills and experience, along with proven competency in two or more of the following: Contract negotiations, contract enforcement and administration, NLRB processes, new unit organizing, membership communications (print and online) and use of social media as a tool of worker advocacy.

Local 39521 is one of the largest units of TNG-CWA with a long and proud history representing workers in the news industry, language interpreting and translating, social justice and labor organizations. Background in one or more of our represented industries would be a major plus for any candidate. Strong writing and online communication skills are a must.

Our office is located in downtown San Francisco. We have an administrative/support staff and outside legal counsel. Our budgetary position is strong but we face many challenges due to the ongoing assault on the labor movement — challenges the interim Executive Officer will be expected to meet in innovative ways.

We offer competitive pay and benefits, depending on experience. This is a non-represented salaried/exempt position. Hiring will be overseen by a subcommittee of local leaders appointed by the Local 39521 Executive Committee.

If you are interested in applying please email your resume and a cover letter to:

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday June 22, 2018, 5 p.m.  No phone calls please.
