CEIU National Young Worker Committee

CEIU’s national young worker committee met for its inaugural meeting from Saturday, January 20, to Sunday, January 21 in Ottawa, at CEIUs National Headquarters.

The committee is composed of one young worker representative per region of CEIU. On Saturday afternoon, the committee participated in the Women’s March on Ottawa, and had the opportunity to network with allies in our community and the broader labour movement.

CEIU’s NYWC had an extremely productive first meeting. Aside from establishing terms of reference, the committee discussed issues being faced by young workers both at work and within our union. This group of innovative activists submitted two resolutions for the next convention, and are pushing the envelope on the usage of modern tools of communications. They seek and desire collaboration with other CEIU national committees, mentorship from more experienced union activists, and hope to participate in more aspects of their union. The committee intends to hold monthly conference calls and to build young worker networks in their regions.

Special congratulations to the newly elected committee co-chairs: Mackenzie Campbell (MAN/SASK) and Bryan Nolan (NB/PEI)!
