Youth Representatives’ Opinions On Recruiting And Representing Young Workers: A Twofold Unsatisfied Demand?, Kurt Vandaele

Kurt Vandaele

Unionization levels are far lower among young workers than for the workforce in general. How can trade unions become more responsive to their particular interests and needs? Union confederations, even in countries with decentralized union structures, have the potential to take effective initiatives to facilitate and support new organizing strategies targeted at young workers, for example by spreading knowledge, practical skills and vision of relevance for improving the representation and recruitment of young workers.
