Union Summer Internship Now Accepting Applications

Want to spend your summer learning about social and economic justice and working for change? The Union Summer internship program just might be the place for you. 

Union Summer is an educational internship in which participants are introduced to the labor movement through union organizing campaigns. It will begin with a weeklong orientation and training, which will be held June 17-21. After the orientation, interns will work in teams on union organizing campaigns across the country. Interns will play an important role in helping build support for workers trying to gain a voice in their workplaces and in their communities.

The work interns will be doing could include:

  • Working on state legislative battles.
  • Talking with workers one on one about their jobs.
  • Planning and participating in direct actions like marches.
  • Building relationships with community, labor and religious organizations.
