JOB POSTING: Canvass Coordinator

June 4, 2021

This is a full-time position through September 2021, with the possibility of extension depending on the program’s results.

Organization Overview:

SEIU Healthcare Minnesota represents over 40,000 healthcare and long term care workers in hospitals, clinics, nursing home, and home care across Minnesota. SEIU Healthcare Minnesota is dedicated to building an organization which advances social and economic justice through work on local, state, national and even global policy issues which affect our members; our patients, residents and clients; and our communities. Focused on uniting workers in healthcare, long term care, and homecare, SEIU members are winning better wages, healthcare and more secure jobs for our communities, uniting their strength with their counterparts around the state and world to help ensure that workers benefit from today’s global economy.

Position Description:

This is a full-time position through September 2021, with the possibility of extension depending on the program’s results. SEIU Healthcare Minnesota is seeking a Canvass Coordinator to lead a team of canvassers who will have organizing conversations with home care workers who provide services to people with disabilities and seniors all across the state. Home care workers are often isolated from other people who do the same work as them and share similar struggles to theirs. Through organizing and becoming active in their union, they can discover the power of collective action and their own individual power as leaders of a statewide movement for recognition, fair treatment and professionalism for the vital work they do. The canvass coordinator will play a central role in bringing that opportunity for transformation and progress to more home care workers across the state. The canvass team will be based in St. Paul, and deployed from there to cities throughout Minnesota. Irregular hours, evening and weekend work will be required.

Responsibilities:

Qualified applicants may send a résumé, cover letter, and three references to Phillip Cryan, Executive Vice President of SEIU Healthcare Minnesota, at phillip.cryan@seiuhcmn.org.
