Toronto – June 30, 2023 – The 2023 season of the renowned UFCW Canada Young Workers Internship program recently kicked off in Toronto where young UFCW Canada activists gathered for a week of dynamic worker-led training and movement building.
Over a dozen UFCW Canada young worker activists from across Ontario and the Maritimes took part in the training where they explored topics ranging from labour history to the importance of unions in society, politics, and the media.
“YIP gives us new opportunities to help us understand our union better,” says UFCW Local 175 member Alicia Da Silva. “The program empowers us with confidence to help make positive change in our workplace and community.”
The 2023 Young-Workers Internship Program will continue its cross-country tour with stops in Winnipeg, Vancouver and Montreal.
