Fast Food Rights is an initiative of the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU). It partners with local allies across the labour movement on various organising projects targeting traditionally under-unionised workplaces. Partners on current projects include Sheffield and Leeds Trades Council.
An increasingly large section of the UK’s economy is built on the backs of under-unionised workers in low-paid industries. Despite being profitable businesses, a lack of organised workers has led to insecurity and low pay. The only way of changing this is through workers in these sectors coming together and taking action.
We are seeking to fill one role each in three projects in the Yorkshire region (in Sheffield, Leeds and Rotherham respectively). Each will work with the National Organiser to identify, plan and enact local organising drives in workplaces, in accordance with the broader strategic plan.
These roles would suit someone at the beginning or early stages of a career as a trade union organiser. It is an opportunity to gain practical experience of organising in an innovative and supportive environment with the scope to trial new methods. Training will be provided.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter with a passion for social and economic justice and an ability to motivate others. Please refer to the person specification for more details.
Flexible hours (some evening and weekend work will be required).
