NZ Presentation: Engaging young workers

This blog post is 7 years old. Please, when reading this, be mindful of its age.

On 10 July, I was honoured to speak at the Stand Up conference for the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions, in Wellington. The topic of my talk was how unions can engage young workers.

Unions in New Zealand are facing some very substantial challenges but are also running some great campaigns. Not only is the NZ economy in dire straights under the mismanagement of the conservative National party prime minister John Key, but the Nationals are also attacking unions and workers. Soon, laws will be introduced to the NZ parliament that would attack the wages and conditions of working people who have collectively bargained with their employer.

My presentation was on how unions can communicate with and engage young workers. My goal was to provide a framework for union organisers and delegates to focus on relevance when developing their campaigns.
