"The Labour Movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress"
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We know that when workers come together, we can do great things! The end of child labour, fair wages for all, paid maternity leave and so much more all happened because workers and unions came together in action.
A Local Organizer brings co-workers together to promote fairness and better working conditions in the workplace.
Unions need people to actively be doing this organizing work.
You can learn how to do this work. The YEU is developing a trained network of organizers to build a more connected, informed, and engaged membership.

Local Organizers commit to this role for a 1-year period.
If selected, you will first participate in a 2-day workshop on Local Organizing in late April. Over these 2 days, we explore how unions win big when they have an "engaged" membership. We'll learn about the various approaches that organizers use to get there. There will be lots of practice! Then you will begin to map out a plan of action for your local.
Following this workshop, we'll continue to meet regularly throughout 2022 to learn from each other and from other unions.
To find out more about this project, please read the FAQ for Local Organizers and contact Lynne Pajot if you have additional questions.
