Outline:

The case for organising and supporting young workers is increasingly urgent as youth unemployment reaches alarming levels and young people at work face increasing job insecurity, vulnerability and low pay. Yet trade union membership among young people remains low. This event looks at the ways trade unions are taking on the challenge of organising and empowering young members and how the TUC and unions can work together to promote the benefits of trade union membership to young people both in the workplace and wider community.

TUC 60 SECOND AD CONTEST

This event will also showcase the winning entries to the TUC's 60 Second Ads contest, the TUC competition inviting budding film makers to submit 60 second films promoting the benefits of trade unions.
