Young Workers Committee INTRODUCTION The Canadian Union of Public Employee (CUPE) is a large diverse organization that oversees the needs and wants of many employees across Canada. One of these diverse classifications is age and more specifically, looking at the young workers within our workplaces. As many would say that the more experienced, older generation in our workplace is behind in technological advancements, some would also say that the younger generation of workers are generally silenced and overlooked by the older generation workers and their employers in regards to aspects that could ultimately benefit them and their work environment for years to come HOW DOES IT WORK This committee would encompass a minimum of one (1) person per department to discuss issues revolving around young workers within the workplace such as: Health and Safety, Labour relations, Collective Bargaining Agreement and much more. Information gathered and collected will be evaluated and considered by the executive member for review and consideration for other committees if required. In addition, any notes gathered throughout the year can be used as discussion topics for the YOW committee when meetings occur.
