Prewitt Organizing Fund?
September 5, 2006 8:10 PM   Subscribe

Labor movement people... this is a long shot I know... Does anyone have any experience with the Prewitt Organizing Fund?

(They're a non-profit who provide strategic support and experienced staff to (mostly?) Change To Win unions). I'm considering moving from one of the big unions to Prewitt, who seem very keen to hire me. It sounds like interesting work and a good deal, but I know very little about them, and I'm not in a position to ask anyone I work with.

So has anyone ever worked with or for Prewitt, used them for a campaign, or otherwise have direct experience of them? Are they legit? Is it a bad move? What role do they actually play on campaigns?

I'm not interested in educated guesses, unless they are very educated!

Prewitt is a great idea - project work for organizers at decent pay. The problem is that Prewitt is currently conducting a very nast union busting campaign on their own staff's union. 4 of 6 working organizers have been fired (i'm 1 of them), another is expecting to be any day. I don't see much future for or with Prewitt until their Exec. Dir. is replaced or they settle with their union (or both).
