Drivers Union Campaign Organizer

Drivers Union was built by and for gig workers, primarily Uber and Lyft drivers, to fight for justice and fairness in the gig economy.  Drivers Union has won nation-leading earnings protections, due process rights, a wide range of benefits, and a voice for drivers in their work lives. Drivers have fought long and hard to establish these rights, and we are looking for staff who will help us continue to advance social and economic justice for workers and their communities.

  • Independent, remote work with regular check-ins, good communication, and occasional travel  
  • Proficiency and/or ability to learn database and workplace applications  
  • Valid driver’s license, auto insurance and car  
  • Other duties, responsibilities, and activities that may change at any time 

Drivers Union offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits including full family medical, dental and vision, auto allowance, paid time off, and matching retirement contributions. 

Workers for Uber, Lyft, and other gig companies come from all over the world, and Drivers Union supports drivers in dozens of languages. Particular consideration will be given to candidates with: fluency in languages other than English; campaign, coalition-building, community leadership, and/or policy expertise; and for-hire driving experience. Applicants will be considered regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, marital status, disability, religious or political affiliation, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
