This is from the New York City Central Labor Council:
United Federation of Teachers
The UFT seeks a campaign communications professional with a background in labor or progressive nonprofits to join its member communication team.
Candidates should be able to help develop and produce print and online materials for the union's campaigns and to write for the website and the member newspaper. S/he should have strong writing skills and the ability to produce content for a variety of communications channels, including print, website and social media.
Candidates should have a minimum of 2-3 years of experience working in strategic communications or issue advocacy, preferably for a labor union or non-profit, and a dedicated commitment to social justice and the labor movement.
Applicants should submit a cover letter and resume as well as 1-2 work samples to the Director of Member Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nobody asked but this blog is recommending MORE's Mike Schirtzer or Ed Notes' Norm Scott for the position. They each have a history of doing communications on the internet and Norm also wrote a hard copy edition of Ed Notes for years. Perhaps Sean Crowley would be interested in relocating from Buffalo. Maybe South Bronx School or NYC Educator are looking for a change. NYC Educator is regularly published in many periodicals.
I would also think the blogger Chaz might be a good candidate for the job but the ad says the person should preferably have a commitment to social justice which we know Chaz doesn't care for much.
Do any of our fine readers know of anyone who might be interested in spreading the word about how great the UFT is to the world and the membership?
Maybe the union should add that the ideal candidate should have the ability to convince the membership that times are wonderful when so much evidence in the schools contradicts this main UFT assertion.
