Scaling Up Young Worker Organising

Thursday, August 6, 2020: 3 pm - 4.30 pm AEST

Presented by Arian McVeigh, Manager at the Young Workers Centre UnionsACT, and Rachel Burgess, Organiser at the Young Workers Centre, UnionsACT

The UnionsACT Young Workers Centre has piloted a mass peer-to-peer program of young worker organising and training over the 2019-2020 summer known as 'Summer Patrol'. 'Summer Patrol' is adapted from similar programs being run in Norway and the UK where young worker activists are skilled-up in talking union to then head into publicly accessible businesses to survey other young workers, promote unionism and campaign against wage-theft.
