We are asking affiliates of the New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) to please send your Young Workers to this Conference.  We will be having Guest Speakers and panel discussions.

Participants will be introduced to the economic realities of young workers today and gain knowledge on the issues that affect young workers.

On behalf of the NBFL Young Workers committee, I thank you in advance for sending your young workers and making our conference a success!

In Solidarity
