NJ Work Environment Council seeks an executive director

From the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC):

An exciting opportunity with the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC)
Executive Director Job Announcement and Description
Review of Applications Begins January 30, 2015

Serving as Executive Director of the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC) is an exciting and unusual opportunity for someone with the skills, experience, and commitment needed to help build a powerful movement for social change that unites labor, environmental, and community constituencies.

Founded in 1986, WEC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit alliance of 70 New Jersey labor, community, and environmental organizations working together for safe, secure jobs and a healthy, sustainable environment. Through organizing, coalition-building, public policy campaigns, education, training, and technical assistance, WEC promotes dialogue, collaboration, and joint action by workers, community members, and environmentalists.

While its programmatic efforts are focused in New Jersey, WEC has long served as a national model for labor-environmental collaboration.

WEC’s public voice is well-informed, creative, and bold.  We take on powerful corporate and political interests to serve our mission.  Current efforts include defending environmental and workplace safeguards from assault by corporations and their political allies; promoting healthy public schools for children, educators and other school staff; ensuring worker and neighborhood safety at industrial facilities that use hazardous chemicals and in communities endangered by highly flammable crude oil trains; and educating workers about their rights to safe and healthy workplaces.
