IAM District and Local Lodges are encouraged to consider sending young activists to represent the Machinists Union at the AFL-CIO NextUp Young Worker Summit.
The conference will take place March 19-22, 2015 at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL. An early registration fee of $45 will last until February 15, 2015. A discounted hotel room rate of $149 is available until February 24, 2015, or when the block is full, whichever comes first.
More than 1,000 young union members, students and activists will develop a pro-worker agenda and learn the skills and tools to push that agenda across the U.S. and Canada. At a time when Millennials are facing double-digit unemployment rates, higher education costs, and flattening wages, getting involved in one’s union has never been more important.
