The TUC works to promote union membership amongst young workers and campaigns for better pay, employment rights and employment opportunities for young people.

Living for the Weekend - Understanding Britain’s young core workers

Unions exist to represent everyone at work, yet very few young workers are union members. The TUC looked at the group of young workers who would most benefit from being in a union and has produced this report to help unions with their organising efforts.


Young workers month

Young Workers Month is held every year in November. It 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. Find out more
