The law clerk will work closely with attorneys to produce legal research and writing on important worker issues, including labor and civil rights laws and related legal proceedings and legislation. The work of law clerks supports the goals of the union’s officers and staff, including to further organizing campaigns and engage in legislative advocacy at the federal and state level. Law clerks also assist in developing potential litigation and counseling decision-makers, including affiliate local unions and the UFCW’s regional and program-level staff. We involve law clerks as much as possible in discussions with attorneys and staff so that clerks may understand how their work fits into the union’s wider mission, and how unions develop strategies for organizing workers and advancing worker interests.
