The Washington State Labor Education and Research Center is searching for 2 positions:

  • Labor Educator
  • Labor Policy Research Analyst and Grant Writer

The Washington State Labor Education and Research Center, created by the Legislature in 1987, is Washington's only entity dedicated to research about, and providing education, training and skills development for, workers and their organizations. 

The Labor Educator will work with Labor Center staff to plan and implement trainings and workshops with unions, community organizations, apprenticeships and Seattle College programs.  The Labor Educator may facilitate classes for union members, stewards and staff.  Topics may include contract enforcement, collective bargaining, leadership and communication, community-labor alliances, organizing, and basic workplace rights.  The Labor Educator will build strategic partnerships with labor and community organizations to develop training programs, and will be a resource to faculty and staff at the Seattle Colleges.  To meet the needs of our client organizations, the Labor Educator will frequently work on evenings or weekends, and throughout the state and region; bilingual candidates are especially encouraged to apply. 

The Labor Policy Research Analyst and Grant Writer will work with the Labor Center Director, staff and partner organizations to identify and investigate key labor policy issues in Seattle, King County, Washington State and the region.  The Labor Policy Research Analyst and Grant Writer will seek public or private funding to support research and publication of research findings about these policy questions.  They will engage in both qualitative and quantitative research to produce papers, reports and informational materials accessible to the general public, labor leaders, and policy makers.  These materials will further the understanding of work and employment issues and identify best practices to support workers and unions in Washington State and the region.  The Labor Policy Research Analyst and Grant Writer will build strategic partnerships with labor and community organizations to develop research projects, and will be a resource to faculty and staff at the Seattle Colleges.  The Labor Policy Research Analyst and Grant Writer may also participate in trainings and workshops with unions, community organizations, and campus programs to share research findings and to assist in labor education programs.
