Trade unions’ ‘deliberative vitality’ towards young workers: survey evidence across Europe
Young Workers and Trade Unions: A Global View (2015)

Abstract

In Chapter 2, Kurt Vandaele focusses on the integration and participation of young workers in union life and structures. Vandaele uses data from six European Trade Union Federations to provide a comparative perspective of the established relationship between young workers and unions. As he notes, youth trade union structures can be successful and yield results in terms of membership and organising if they are not seen merely as ‘cosmetic constructions’.
