Volunteer to help build a stronger union!

A union is only as strong as its membership. Although our Guild employs a small staff to tend to the organization’s day-to-day business, the commitment and volunteerism of our members are what really make our union thrive. 

 

If you’re looking for ways to get more involved in your union, below are some volunteer opportunities in which you can participate. Select one (or more!) that best matches your interests, skills, and available time.


In addition to the activities below, if you’re interested in collaborating with your fellow Guild members on long-term projects and focus areas, please check out our Committees page to see the committees you can join. If you would like to take on a bigger role in shaping the future of the Guild, our democratically-elected Board of Directors is the union’s policy-making body; check out our Board of DirectorsGoverning the Guild and Guild Elections pages for more information on how it operates and how to run.
