Young unionists network hosts conference in Melbourne

MELBOURNE — On September 12-13, the Victorian Young Unionists' Network (YUN) will host a "maintain the rage" conference for young people at Victorian Trades Hall Council (VTHC). The theme is to serve as a reminder that Work Choices legislation still exists and needs to be fought.

The YUN, run through VTHC, was established to bring together young union members.

The first day, specifically designed for high school students and new workers, will take up topics such as legal rights, access and equity and health and safety issues. On the second day activists will discuss environmental issues, queer rights, community organising and other campaigns.
