(PRESS RELEASE) — The National Workers Union Youth Council (NWUYC) will hold its second annual Youth Congress under the theme “Trade Unions: A Youthful Perspective,” next week Friday.
The Congress will bring together 40 young workers from a cross-section of the union’s branches and will be addressed by Nikoli Edwards of Trinidad and Tobago.
The event will create a platform for these young workers to recognize and appreciate the role of trade unions in national development—especially as young people continue to be critical to the growth and longevity of the trade union movement.
The Congress coincides with the observance of National Youth Month in Saint Lucia and provides an avenue to execute the mandate of the NWUYC: “To be the catalyst for the advancement and development of young workers through advocacy, empowerment and equal opportunities.”
The Youth Congress will be held on Friday, April 26 at the Finance Administrative Centre in Pointe Seraphine, Castries.
