A New Deal for Work: Young Workers


Hall 14, BT Convention Centre, Liverpool. 12.45-14.00

How can unions give hope to the next generation of workers?

The labour market is changing, placing unique pressures on students and young people. Many young workers struggle to find high quality employment and often lack good careers advice and support. These themes have been explored by Unions21 Fair Work Commission and in a new NUS report on The Future of Work. This fringe meeting will discuss these challenges and the union role in finding solutions.
