Workers United Member Organizer Training

What is a Member Organizer?
Member Organizers (MO) are union members who help other workers secure union representation at their worksite. A Member Organizer informs people about their rights, identifies and develops leadership skills among workers, explains the union organizing process and helps workers campaign for union recognition.
Organizers build relationships based on what those workers do at their jobs, the problems and challenges they face at work, and inspires them to get involved with their co-workers to have a say on the job by organizing a union. The ultimate goal is for workers to build power in their workplaces by winning a contract with their employer that makes real improvements in their living and working conditions.
