In our union, healthcare workers advocate together to improve our work, our lives, and the lives of everyone we care for. This happens in the day-to-day care we provide, and at the negotiating table. It also happens beyond the bedside, when we take our advocacy to decision-makers in our communities, state, and nation, and demand new or updated policies that improve care, jobs, and our communities.
At times, the union is able to provide leadership development opportunities for members to engage more deeply in this political work to improve our jobs and healthcare in the state. Member Political Organizers (MPOs) are union members who take temporary leave from work to dedicate full- or part-time hours to this political advocacy. While part of an MPO program, the union pays your regular hourly rate, or $15 per hour (whichever is greater), as you help to lead healthcare workers in effective advocacy and in growing our political power together.
In spring 2021 we have a variety of MPO Opportunities available. For more information about these positions, including start and end dates, weekly commitment, and other eligibility requirements, please review this document: https://bit.ly/
