Job Description:

          

Representation Specialist

Location:         Northern California
 
Given the nature of our work as a union and the responsibilities of this position in particular, we are looking for a candidate with the capacity to communicate across many lines of difference, with the ability to handle conflict and challenges with steadiness, and the capacity to craft innovative outcomes that honor various individual needs.
 
CFA takes an organizing approach to representation. As a result, the Representation Specialist plays a key role in identifying and developing local and statewide representation issues and strategies with an understanding of how these issues connect to chapter and leadership development.
 
The CFA field staff team and representation specialists work together to provide representation, to identify and activate new leaders, and to develop stronger chapters.  Representation Specialists may sometimes be called on to help organize statewide work actions and events.  The ideal candidate will also need to be able to work independently on assigned cases.
 
The ideal Representation Specialist will have experience as an advocate and be skilled in identifying contract violations, filing grievances, representing members in arbitrations, and writing post-hearing briefs.  Experience handling unfair labor practices is also useful in this position.  Excellent research and writing skills required. 
 
The ideal candidate will also possess the ability to work and thrive in a team environment.  These abilities include communicating effectively with others, and recognizing, understanding and respecting different viewpoints.  This necessarily includes a willingness to partner with leaders and staff.
 
Representation Specialists typically have legal experience; an advanced degree is not required.
 
Salary/Benefits/Other requirements:  CFA offers a fully paid benefit package including medical, dental, vision and generous paid leave. This position is covered by a collective bargaining agreement; salary is commensurate with experience.  Some travel required.   
 
To apply send cover letter and resume with references and two writing samples to:
searchcommittee@calfac.org

Interviews to begin mid August, 2017.

 
CFA is an Affirmative Action Employer. Women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
