Regional designees of the Young Members Committee met in Washington, D.C. this week. The designees discussed how to bridge the gap between seasoned, new and young members to drive the union forward.
“APWU young workers, it’s your time to shine and carry the torch for the generations that are coming behind us,” said Dominique Ballinger, Eastern Region designee from the Nation’s Capital Southern MD Area Local.
The Committee also worked on the upcoming Young Members’ Meeting, which will be held at the All Craft Conference on Saturday, October 26th at the Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel. All members, especially those 35 and younger, are encouraged to attend this meeting to discuss the labor movement and exchange tactics and strategies to get young workers involved in the union.
