The IFT internship program is dedicated to growing the next generation of union leaders.

The IFT is now accepting applications for the 2020-21 Department of Field Operations Field Service and Organizing internship. The application deadline is July 1, 2020.

This internship is an excellent opportunity for a union leader or activist who may consider applying for future job vacancies to learn more about IFT field service and organizing work. Travel and a considerable time commitment will be required. 

Application is made by emailing a letter of interest co-signed by yourlocal president and current resume to Kathy Shaevel via Laura Kies at no later than July 1, 2020.

The way we win is by organizing. The place we start is right here. Fill out this form for grassroots volunteer opportunities and we'll be in touch with you soon.
