The Center for Union Facts seeks an energetic and enterprising researcher to join the group’s growing public outreach and education program.
The Center for Union Facts (CUF) is a leading union watchdog organization dedicated to educating Americans about the labor union movement. We work to expose labor leaders’ abuse of their members’ trust. We are committed to preserving union transparency, democracy, and union members’ right to work. We are also a leading voice against union’s attempts to pass “card check” legislation and the Employee Free Choice Act.
The Center for Union Facts also maintains the largest web-accessible database of information about labor unions, including union finances, union leader compensation, lobbying, hard and soft money political contributions, strikes, unfair labor practices, union elections, and much more. We work extensively with reporters, union members, labor experts, academics, businesses and anyone else who seeks information about labor unions.
A successful candidate will work with the Managing Director and Executive Director to provide in depth research and writing on the labor movement. A researcher’s duties may include assisting in the Center’s public relations campaigns, writing detailed reports, creating compelling print, television, and online advertisements, and producing web and video content.
Other daily duties are likely to include: news updates and press clips, drafting newsletters, writing blog posts, letters to the editor, press releases, and OpEds, working with whistleblowers, updating our growing social media presence, updating website databases, filing FOIA requests, and assisting in message testing and advertisement development.
Candidates should have a college degree and at least two to five years of work experience in a job that has demonstrated an ability to think on your feet. Candidates should also have a track record of strong writing and research skills. Knowledge of the organized labor movement is a plus. Salary is commensurate with experience.
