What is Young Workers Month?

Held in November every year, TUC Young Workers Month aims to promote trade unions to young workers and highlight the issues faced by young workers.

Young Workers Month is an opportunity for union reps, activists and campaigners to reach out and inform young workers about trade unions and ensure that there are sufficient opportunities for young people to get involved and play an active role in shaping the 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 both in the workplace and beyond.

How to get involved:

Unions have organised a series of event and activities which will be taking place throughout this November, get in touch with your union to find out what they've got planned. Watch this space and the Forum's twitter account @TUCYoungWorkers and #YWM16 for updates about Young Workers Month.

Please use any of the resources on this web page to promote Young Workers Month within your union and on social media.
