Young workers from Unite have pledged to get more involved in the ITF/IndustriALL industrial hubs programme.

The Unite youth conference in Eastbourne in May brought together under 27s from across the UK – the hubs programme was presented to participants as part of the agenda.

Those in the room were clear that cross-sectoral working is essential in transport and beyond. One participant said: “To not have young workers involved in this as much as they possibly can be just doesn’t make sense. We need to have a really strong and structured response to big companies who might want to take advantage of gaps between workers, young people are key to that.”

Unite has 134,000 young members in total across its 22 sectors and 10 regions.
