Young Workers face unique challenges in their workplaces.
Unifor is committed to creating space for young workers within the union through local union and regional young workers committees as well as young worker conferences and training programs to develop confidence, skills, and the knowledge to participate actively in union life and play a role in building our union for the future.
National Young Workers Committee
The National Young Workers Committee is composed of regional representatives elected at their respective regional councils. The committee acts as an advisor to the regional councils and the National Executive Board on matters relating to young workers.
First Young Workers Conference: A Great Success!
From October 1st to 3rd, 2014, Unifor young workers gathered for their first conference. The successful conference took place at the Ryerson Student Centre, a student union-owned and operated building in the heart of Toronto.
During the conference, young Unifor members heard from Nation President, Jerry Dias, who encouraged them to play an active role in their local unions. Participants also heard from the other Unifor staff and activists on the issues of retirement security, social media and the structure of the union. They also discussed ways to build their local young workers committees.
