Expressions of Interest: 2024 HSA Young Workers Committee
Are you 35 years old or younger and interested in getting more involved in your union?
HSA is now accepting applications for the 2024 Young Workers’ Committee. The group advises the union’s Board of Directors on issues important to the one-third of HSA members who are 35 and under.
The Young Workers’ Committee (YWC) comprises of six young workers who help the union to:
- understand how HSA is relevant to young workers 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 our Young Workers Committee is a great way to gain skills and knowledge that can help you become more active in your union. Past members of the Young Workers Committee have gone on to become stewards at their local HSA chapter, serve on HSA’s Board of Directors, and have implemented 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 committee.

Applications are due by Monday, February 12th at 11:59 PM PST.
