Are you or anyone you know interested in working for social change? Union Summer is a paid ($15/hour) summer internship program, sponsored by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, for people interested in getting involved in the labor movement. 

Union Summer participants will spend an exciting six weeks, from June 26 - August 2, 2018 working full-time and hands-on with different campaigns—talking to our community, marching for justice, and gaining first-hand experience in the movement.

The positions are based in and around Seattle and the Tri-Cities, but campaigns may take place throughout our region. For more information about last year's Union Summer, click here.

“My mom has worked union jobs, so I knew what workers can accomplish together. As Union Summer interns we participated in campaigns with workers all over the region. Union Summer has led to so many opportunities and experiences that have continued even after the summer. I really grew personally from these experiences. I have learned to believe in myself so I can lead others and help them fight for themselves.” - Anita Ibarra, Union Summer Intern
