The New England Regional Council of Carpenters is seeking an experienced and strategic leader to serve as its Political Director. The Council represents over 28,000 carpenters, pile drivers, shop & millmen, and floorcoverers working in New England and New York state.
This is an incredible opportunity for a talented leader to grow and build a sophisticated political program in a union with a long, successful history of advocating for workers and their families.
Working closely with the Council leaders, the Political Director will shape and set the agenda for the Council’s political program, which seeks to empower members to take action that will help them and their families. The Director will strengthen the political capacity of local unions, union staff and members to hold power in their communities, and at the state and federal level.
The Political Director will lead electoral, legislative and issue-based campaigns to advance this aim. The Director will build and maintain relationships with key political figures, including federal, state and city elected and appointed officials, contractors, labor unions and community organizations.
The ideal candidate is an excellent communicator with a deep belief in the power of union membership and collective action, a commitment to elect champions for working families and a desire to build independent political power for NERCC members and families.
