The young members network – what is it for?
In its simplest form – giving young workers a voice in the workplace and ensuring we have a healthy union which has democracy at its heart, campaigning on the issues that matter, well into the future.
The network was set up in 2004 and has gained momentum since. We are organised in 9 regions covering all civil service departments across the UK.
We have around 700 young PCS members signed up to our network. Our young members’ charter is a set of key principles outlining what we stand for and can be found on our web pages.
Our young member convenors gain useful training and experience in organising and representing members in the workplace and area.
Our objective is to give young workers the confidence, through their trade union, to make a difference – whether that’s in the workplace, community or wider.
We fully support the ‘Youth Fight for Jobs’ campaign which fights for decent jobs and living conditions for young people because we don’t think its right that we should pay for the economic crisis.
We also participate in initiatives around the environment, tax justice and anti fascist campaigning.
