Dear Young Workers: The Provincial Young Workers Committee (PYC) invites you to submit your application for the 2018 Young Workers Conference which will take place from August 10-12 in downtown Toronto. In addition to welcoming previous conference participants, we would like to extend a special invitation to those who have not attended in the past. We welcome all members who identify as young workers, 35 and under. We look forward to meeting you!
This year’s event, “Back to Basics: Your Young Worker Survival Guide” will provide participants with an understanding of their basic rights and entitlements under the law and in their collective agreements. The conference will continue to reinforce the need for young workers to take an active role in shaping their future. Planned activities and workshops will be interactive. Participants will be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to build on the leadership potential of OPSEU. We hope participants leave the event with solid ideas that they can take back to their communities to make a difference.
Event participants will be selected by the PYC with assistance from the Equity Unit. The selection process will try to achieve a diverse group of attendees, representative of the young workers within our membership. All applicants to the conference will be contacted in June and will be advised of the status of their application.
Do not miss this opportunity to network, learn, share experiences and have some fun. Please submit your application no later than midnight, May 31, 2018. You can apply directly by logging onto OPSEU’s member portal at: https://members.opseu.org/. Only online applications will be accepted for this event. We will be using an anonymous selection process and will be applying the criteria as set out in questions 1-8 of the application form. Incomplete applications will not be considered. For any additional requirements, please contact the Equity Unit directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
