Sisters & Brothers:
The Greater Boston Labor Council’s (GBLC) Futures Committee has scheduled its 7th Annual Young Worker Conference. It will be held at the SEIU1199 union hall, 108 Myrtle St. Quincy from 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, December 2, 2017.
The GBLC Futures Committee is comprised of young workers (35 and under) who believe that they have a right to determine the future of their work, their city and their lives. Their mission is to build a young worker movement for social and economic justice.
Past conferences have provided a unique space for young union members to strategize, gain skills, and build relationships that have not only strengthened the work of the GBLC Futures Committee but benefited the Greater Boston labor community.
This year’s theme is Grabbing the Torch, where attendees will learn about the political challenges organized labor are facing both nationally and locally, and the opportunities in this political moment to develop their own leadership and take action in building stronger unions and protect the rights of working families.
The Conference is open to young union members who are 35 years old and younger. I encourage our younger members to take advantage of this great opportunity. If you are interested in attending this conference please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We all have the right to determine the future of our work, our city, and our lives. Join us in building a young worker movement for social and economic justice.
