Union Summer Is Back and It's Going to Be Hot
The 2nd Annual MLKCLC Union Summer internship program kicks off on Tuesday, June 20th. Twelve interns have been selected and will get firsthand experience in union organizing, canvassing, and strategic campaigns. Development will also include weekly education sessions, provided by the Labor Education and Research Center, about labor history and intersecting struggles, such as the fight for racial equity or immigrant rights in the workplace, along with crucial skills such as communication and organizing. The interns have wide-ranging experiences through lives and work and those experiences will be broadened by connecting with organized labor throughout the next six weeks. The following unions are sponsoring and/or helping to develop interns: UFCW Local 21, IUOE Local 286, SEIU 199NW, IAM DL 751, the WSLC and the MLKCLC.
