Priority 5: Trade union renewal


Building trade union power is a priority of industriAll Europe, as agreed at Congress in Madrid in 2016. The Youth Working Group is one of industriAll Europe’s 3 horizontal working groups. Youth participation is fundamental to trade union renewal. Young voices need to be heard both to secure the future of trade unions and improve the working conditions of younger workers who have entered the labour market in the post-crisis era. This is an action-oriented capacity-building training which aims to support young unionists in their activities of building trade union power. The focus will be on learning how to set up and implement an organising campaign at company level: steps to go through; skills and tools needed; sharing of practices; support provided by industriAll Europe.
