IUE-CWA, the Industrial Division of the Communications Workers of America

IUE-CWA, the Industrial Division of the Communications Workers of America, is seeking a General Counsel. The position requires at least ten years of experience, preferably on the staff of an International Union or performing a traditional union-side practice for a law firm. The General Counsel advises the IUE-CWA President, directs and supervises the work of two staff attorneys and the department’s secretary, as well as advises IUE-CWA service staff in all traditional labor and employment law areas (NLRA, LMRDA, FMLA, etc.), in addition to the usual administrative duties of a legal department.

The position requires relocating to Dayton, Ohio, where IUE-CWA’s headquarters are located (relocation costs are subsidized by the Union). In addition to the qualifications above, the ideal candidate will be self-motivated, flexible, able to work with diverse groups, social justice-minded and willing to assist the entire IUE-CWA headquarters team as called upon to move the IUE-CWA agenda forward. Experience with the manufacturing sector is a plus. The position will require some travel. The position includes all of CWA’s generous employee benefits and will pay between $115,000 to $125,000, depending on experience.

CWA is an equal opportunity employer, and, as such, does not discriminate against an employee or applicant on the basis of race, creed, color, age, sex, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, disability, or any other classification protected from discrimination under applicable law.
