Next Generation trade unionism – What more can unions do to recruit and support Britain’s young workers?
(TUC Assistant General Secretary);
Chair: Jeremias Prassl
Tuesday 4 February 2014
6.15 - 7.45pm at the UCL Faculty of Laws
With less than 1 in 12 young workers holding a union card, what more can Britain’s unions do to reach out to the next generation of potential union members and activists?
Paul Nowak, TUC assistant general secretary, will review union efforts to organise and recruit young workers and to build effective trade unions in the private service sector. The session will also explore what practical steps unions can take to make trade unionism relevant to Britain’s young workers.
