Often trapped by the challenges of low pay, in precarious, insecure jobs, struggling with rising housing costs, or just finding it difficult to get onto the next rung of the career ladder, young workers need trade unions.
And trade unions need young workers — they are the here and now of our movement.
UNISON places young workers front and centre of our organising agenda, working alongside young workers representatives we shape our campaigns to help secure a better future for all workers – that’s why fought to make 2019 the Year of the Young Worker across the entire trade union movement.
This booklet has been compiled to celebrate the amazing contribution young activists make to the trade union and labour movement.
We hope that you find inspiration from the activists and campaigners we’ve brought together!
