My role as the Chair is to co-ordinate and organise the Young Members Network and represent the views of young members on several committees, including the TUC Young Member ‘s Forum.
I believe the only way we can improve our pay and terms and conditions, is to organise and fight back. My organising strategy for the network is to go back to basics, mapping the regions and getting activists into branches to recruit new young members by campaigning on issues they care about.
National Young Members Vice Chair : Debbie Mallet
Equalities Officer : Keelan Rantanen
As the equalities officer it is my responsibility to ensure there is an equality focus throughout the work the committee does, and encourage participation of under-represented groups.
We are experiencing tough times for young people and those with protected characteristics are likely to suffer worse. It is only by standing together united that we will be able to fight these constant attacks on our futures.
