Now Hiring Faculty
Support and strengthen your union
UA-UNM Organizer Fellows Program
Member organizers work to support the mission of UA-UNM. Our mission is to build a proactive, member-run union that reflects the diversity of our faculty across campuses, departments, and academic titles. We faculty serve our students and the people of New Mexico through our world-class teaching, research, creative work, and public service. Our actions as educators are guided by our majority-minority student population, and we affirm our commitment to our state’s valuable economic, linguistic, racial, ethnic, gender, ability, religious, and cultural diversity.
Member organizers will work in collaboration with UA-UNM professional staff to contact members and prospective members within our union. Membership engagement and identification of prospective members will be the focus of duties. Engagement will be done by conducting campus visits, door knocking, and phone banking. Mobilizing prospective members through the Hustle app and utilizing other constant contact tools such as emails, text, and outreach through social media are also expected.
