Want to Build Your Union, Develop Your Organizing Skills and Earn Pay This Summer?

MTI is looking for four (4) motivated and outgoing MTI teacher* members to become part of our 2018 Wisconsin Education Summer Member Organizer Program.

  • It is an 8 week campaign that begins the week of July 8 and ends the week of September 1.
  • The entire campaign begins with a two day training in Milwaukee on July 10 and 11.  Organizers must attend this entire training.
  • During the campaign organizers will put in about 20 hours a week making connections with members and working to meet the goals that were set at the training.
  • Organizers will connect with potential members, engage in membership conversations and help with organizing membership events.
  • During the campaign there will be mandatory weekly check-ins where organizers will meet with the team leader (me) to reflect on progress and plan for next steps.  These check-ins will be scheduled based on organizer availability.
  • Organizers will also help organize and train other members in preparation for Welcome Back events and additional membership events.
  • Organizers are compensated $600/week.  This is the take home pay amount.
  • This is an application and interview process.  Applications are due by June 12th and organizers will be selected by June 15.
