Paid, Full-time Summer Internship for Social Justice (Deadline: 5/7)

The Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO has a great upcoming opportunity for students interested in working with the labor movement.

Union Summer is a seven week, fully paid ($17.00/hour) internship in the Seattle area that provides experiences in the daily work of labor unions, from member engagement to political campaigns, as well educational days focused on labor history and other topics. Interns will work full-time and hands-on with different campaigns – talking to the community, marching for justice, and gaining first-hand experience in the movement.

The program runs from June 20 through August 7, 2021, and the deadline to apply is Friday, May 7. 

Union Summer has long been a door for UW students to find employment in organized labor and related fields. Many UW alums have found long-term opportunities through the program. At the very least, it is a great hands on opportunity in the day-to-day work of building a movement for social justice.
