Looking for an opportunity to live your values? Do you want to work as part of a diverse team fighting for social justice? We may be what you’re looking for. We believe that all workers should have a voice and our voice is stronger when we rise together. We are Oregon AFSCME - 27,000 workers statewide in both the public and private sector and one of the fastest growing unions in Oregon. We provide workers with the support and resources necessary to advocate/fight for what they need. All this while focusing on growth opportunities for members and leadership with an emphasis on building power through standing strong together. We are interested in individuals who are committed to moving labor forward through real member empowerment.

We are currently seeking to fill a Council Representative position with an individual that has a strong legal or quasi-legal background, organizing skills and experience representing employees. Our Council Representatives provide a broad array of technical, administrative and organizing skills to affiliated locals. This position requires quasi-legal expertise in labor and employment law, strong leadership skills, written and verbal communication skills, as well as the ability to build and maintain positive relationships and exercise good judgment. Representatives operate with general supervision and must be self motivated and able to prioritize and effectively manage a large volume of complex issues.
