Employment Opportunities at Chicago Workers' Collaborative
Updated: Jul 20
Chicago Workers' Collaborative is expanding! The need for robust protections for low wage precarious workers in the Chicago region is greater than ever, and CWC has three open positions available. We are seeking candidates for each of these positions that align with our organization's core values: that the people—precarious workers--should lead, coordinate, and deliver programs; that professionals (e.g. researchers, social workers, college-educated organizers, pastors, etc.) should serve to fill in the gaps to address needs while the ultimate goal is to train the workers to perform in those skill areas; that staff and leaders depend on each other and answer to each other to build a culture of respect, where community collaboration can grow.
