The Young Workers’ Advisory Group (YWAG) is a group of five young workers (HSA members age 35 and under) who help the union to:

  • understand how HSA is relevant to young workers (those 35 and under) and how to encourage their participation in the union;
  • monitor and promote awareness of young worker issues within the union; and
  • encourage increased opportunities in the labour movement for young workers’ involvement and participation.

Joining YWAG is a great way to gain skills and knowledge that can help you become more active in your union. Past members of YWAG have gone on to become stewards at their local HSA chapter, serve on HSA’s Board of Directors, and implement campaigns for a more participatory union as a part of the HSA Core Member Engagement team.
HSA is working towards equity and encourages people who experience marginalization (including but not limited to Indigenous peoples, people of the global majority, women, people with disabilities, LGBTQ2SIA+ people, immigrants and refugees, and members of diverse faiths) to apply to join the advisory committee.
