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.
In 2018, the Young Workers' Conference is coming near you!
In order to build local networks between Unifor young workers, the conference will be happening in each region this year. The conferences will be a great chance to meet other young workers from your region, hear from local activists and hone your skills so you can build a better world around you!
