My Name is Antony Edwards, the Youth Officer for the CWU Capital Branch.
As a Youth Officer, I work closely with members who fall into the CWU Young Workers category from the CWU Head Office.
I wanted to become a Youth Officer because I believe in an equal workplace that makes a difference to people’s lives by moving forward with that statement.
The CWU Young Workers exist to co-ordinate young members (under 30) in the CWU to ensure they have a voice in the union and a platform for campaigning on issues relevant to all young workers. They work to develop union policy, organise education and events to bring together young workers.
The National Young Workers Committee has 20 members elected every year at conference along with two NEC members and are supported by a Youth Coordinator at Head Office.
Additionally each Region of CWU has a Regional Young Worker lead working with members on issues affecting them in the regions and bringing together our Young Worker Branch Officers.
Every year we hold a Young Workers conference for young members from across the union to debate and decide on Union policy and campaigning relating to young workers.
