The Canadian Labour Congress is hosting their first ever National Young Worker's Summit, Oct. 23 - 25, 2016 in Ottawa.
CUPE local 1091 passed a motion at the June 18th general membership meeting to send two representatives from our local to attend this important summit.
There will be discussions on precarious work, income inequality, climate change and much more. The summit will grow leadership, organizing, and political action skills. It will be a place for young workers to exchange stories, skills and strategies about unions and social justice issues.
If you are 30 years of age or younger and would like an opportunity to attend this summit and become active in the labour movement, please email your name, work location, position and contact phone number to the union office as soon as possible. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at (604) 940-8596.
The deadline for applications is: July 31, 2016
