The New York Hotel Trades Council, AFL-CIO, is currently seeking applications for the positions of H.E.A.T. Assistant.
We have built a rank-and-file leadership structure called the Hotel Employees Action Team (H.E.A.T.) System. The purpose of the H.E.A.T. System is to increase the participation of the membership in the union and to greatly enhance the union's ability to mobilize our members for large-scale action, in order to organize non-union workers, to fight for higher wages and better benefits, and to increase the rights of hotel workers.
Areas of Responsibility
H.E.A.T. Assistants work under the direction of H.E.A.T. System Supervisors, and spend much of their time meeting and working with the union's members in the hotels where they work. This is the best way to learn about what our union does and the industry conditions affecting the workers we represent.
H.E.A.T. Assistants may be assigned on short- or long-term bases to special projects and areas of responsibility that include, but are not limited to:
H.E.A.T. Assistants may also be assigned to work on internal and external organizing in Washington, DC.
The H.E.A.T. Assistant position is the starting point on a career track to the most interesting and important leadership positions within our union.
H.E.A.T. Assistants are expected to learn and grow professionally at an accelerated pace. If a H.E.A.T. Assistant is successful, he or she will likely be promoted to H.E.A.T. System Supervisor within a year. H.E.A.T. System Supervisors who distinguish themselves can move into other key positions such as Organizer, Business Agent (Field Representative), or Grievance Officer.
Extra consideration will be given to candidates who possess any of the following:
