Internships and Jobs in Labor Unions

Labor unions are always looking for people dedicated to improving the world. Working for a labor union is both very demanding and extremely rewarding. You won’t get rich … but you’ll be able to help others benefit from better jobs and better pay.

Although labor unions certainly hire those with excellent academic backgrounds, they are just as interested in finding people who have relevant experience: participation in some type of progressive activism and significant experience in any job (particularly bad jobs!). Many attending CSUSB have excellent backgrounds for union work: they have managed to get to college although they come from a background in which such academic achievement is unusual.

If you are interested in union jobs and/or in applying for an internship, contact Eric Nilsson at
