Young Workers

Young Workers Committee

The Young Workers Committee is made up of young workers under 35 years of age and is the newest Standing Committee at Local 199.  The Committee’s overall goal is to develop and maintain an active, educated young membership.  This will be achieved by learning about unions and participating in ongoing union activities and campaigns.  Committee members will report to the membership and Executive Board about the issues and concerns that effect young workers.   The Local Union is currently looking for members who are interested in joining.   Local 199 elected a young worker to the Executive Board for the first time this year. Jake McReady was Elected and is the liaison between the Executive Board and the Young Workers Committee.
