TUC Young Workers Month 2016
26 October 2016
Held in November every year, TUC Young Workers Month #YWM16 aims to promote trade unions to young workers and highlight the issues faced by young people in the workplace and beyond.
Young Workers Month is an opportunity for union activists and campaigners to reach out and inform young workers about trade unions, and to ensure that there are sufficient opportunities for young people to get involved and play an active role in shaping our movement. It’s also a chance for unions to demonstrate to young people that we are campaigning on the issues they care most about and that we are relevant to their lives – not just in November, but all year round.
Equity’s Young Members’ Committee have been active participants in TUC Young Workers’ Month since it began – and 2016 will be no different. Thanks to a motion from the Young Members’ Committee at this years’ Annual Representatives’ Conference, branches and committees across the union are encouraged to participate in Young Workers’ Month by organising their own activities and events to encourage our younger members to get more involved in our union at a local and national level.
If your branch hasn’t yet decided what it could do for November, contact the Young Members’ Committee for ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
