Young Workers

Mission

The mission of the SEIU-West Young Workers Committee is to engage and unite young union members to become more active and knowledgeable in the labour movement.

Our goal is to mobilize young workers across Saskatchewan to become leaders and activists for social change within their unions and communities at large.

Through support, unity and encouragement, we help develop skills for young worker leadership today.

Community Involvement

Involvement from the Young Workers’ Committee in the community is a priority because it is an opportunity to meet the people we live with and work for. Unions have a strong relationship to their communities, and it is important to have Young Workers present. Our committee will strive to ensure a presence at both urban and rural solidarity events, such as: Labour Day events, Sidewalk Day festivals, and Homecomings.

We also get to show them that union members contribute to vibrant communities.
