We're hiring: Organizer


The Toronto & York Region Labour Council is seeking an organizer to work as part of the leadership and staff team in a dynamic and fast-paced organization that is responding to a changing economy and new political realities in Canada’s largest urban centre. This will be either a permanent full-time position or a three-month contract position.

Responsibilities will include working with the Labour Council President and staff on all aspects of the Council’s work in both Toronto and York Region, including political action, building union strength, the development of networks of union activists around key campaign goals, and other duties as assigned.

The successful candidate will have extensive experience in union, political or community organizing and a good knowledge of the labour movement.  They must have strong interpersonal skills, be committed to the equity and anti-racism goals of the Council, and be able to carry out their work with a minimal amount of supervision.  Fluency in a second language will be an asset.  Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Labour Council is committed to providing a fair and equitable work environment and encourages applications from people who are members of equity-seeking groups.
