Nikki Kemp

About Nikki: I’m currently working in Organizing on the Pitt Faculty Campaign. I’ve worked with fast food and health care workers to build the Fight for $15 in Pittsburgh, Philly and across the country. I’ve worked with SEIU Healthcare PA and 32BJ union members to strengthen their chapters and have done work with Planned Parenthood. I’ve been a letter carrier, bartender, and some things in between. Other than that I like to run and box.

Amber Stenman


About Amber: Hello, brothers and sisters! I’m Amber and have spent most of my adult life in the helping professions, ultimately leading to the labor movement when I realized the only true way to lift people up is lifting them out of poverty and helping them find their own voice. My path to getting here included earning a Sociology degree at IUP, a master’s of Social and Public Policy at Duquesne, and years or experience organizing healthcare workers. I couldn’t be more excited to put my experience to work at the USW!
