Young workers who are in trade union recognised workplaces on average have better pay, safer places to work and have better than basic maternity, paternity and carer’s leave.

However, for those who aren’t in trade unionised workplaces, it’s down to us to organise.

By recruiting our colleagues and making them aware that things can be better within the workplace – we’ll make a difference.
