Over 50 CUPE members, aged 30 and under, will gather from all across the country in Montreal on August 19 for CUPE’s first ever Young Workers Strategy Session.
The three-day meeting, held between August 19 and 21, will present many opportunities for participants to have their voices heard and to recommend action strategies for CUPE moving forward.
The event also will also create opportunities for young workers to learn about CUPE’s structure and work, and to connect to their union in a meaningful way, including developing a network with other young workers.
The attendees were selected from a pool of over 300 applications to reflect the diversity of CUPE sectors and demographics and to ensure a multitude of voices at the table. Together, they will develop a vision for CUPE’s future and provided advice to help the union change and evolve with the next generation.
Details from the Session will be reported at the 2013 CUPE National convention. To learn more about the Strategy Session go to cupe.ca/young-workers.
