Tomorrow, November 18: VTHC Annual Young Workers Conference

Young workers are facing an uncertain future.  It's harder than ever for young people to access affordable housing, healthcare and to find secure work.

We're up against a Liberal government hellbent on smashing workers, selling out to their big business mates, and refusing to take the urgent climate action we need. 

To win a fairer, safer future for all young workers we need to make our voices heard. 

That’s why this year, the Young Workers Centre conference is all about building youth power - and we can’t do it without you! 

As part of the conference the Young Workers Centre holding a practical how-to on the skills you need to organise other young people in your workplace, neighbourhood or electorate.  You'll hear from young workers who are building worker power and community power and learn the skills needed to start organising yourself. Sounds good?  RSVP and we'll see you there!

When: Thursday 18th November, 6:00 - 8:00pm 
Where: Zoom, RSVP now to get the link!

VTHC Training for HSRs and Deputy HSRs

The scheduled courses for rest of the year are 'sold out' - with waitlists! However, the new timetable for next year is currently being finalised, so keep your eyes on the OHS [email protected] website as it's a good idea to book early as our courses will be very much in demand when things get back to normal. 

Note: once face-to-face training begins in 2022, it will in line with the VTHC's COVIDSafe Plan, which means that all participants will need to provide and show a valid COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate prior to entering Trades Hall or training at other venues.
