The People’s Potato is looking for new collective members.
3 positions at 30-35 hours/week
AND 2 positions at 15-20 hours/week
Remuneration: $18.25 per hour
The primary activity of the People’s Potato is to serve daily vegan lunch to about 400 people on the Concordia University SGW campus. The People’s Potato is an anti-capitalist, worker-run organization where decisions are made collectively. Collective members both guide and execute the vision of the organization.
All individuals hired will cook, clean, and pick up food donations; many tasks require heavy lifting. Collective members will take on a variety of these 4-hour shifts each week (4-5 shifts for full-timers or 2-3 for part-timers) and will participate in committee work such as organizing workshops, coordinating volunteers, etc. Committee work will be determined based on the interests and skills of the new hire and on the Collective’s current needs.
Contracts typically begin mid-August, end mid-May and are renewed on a yearly basis. We are seeking applicants who are able to make at least a one year commitment. Work schedules are flexible; however collective members are expected to be available most weekdays between 8:30am and 3:30pm. We hold weekly collective meetings where attendance is mandatory. During these meetings, facilitation and minute-taking tasks rotate among all collective members.
