1st Federal Youth School takes place in Valencia

June 25, 2010

The 1st Federal Youth School of the Public Services Federation was held on 3rd, 4th and 5th June in Valencia, Spain. Under the slogan “Rewrite your role”, about eighty young delegates (male and female) from throughout the country met in the city of Valencia to discuss the role of young workers in the union Comisiones Obreras (CC.OO.)

The lectures and workshops addressed various aspects of union life: the history of CC.OO, the role of collective bargaining, equality policies within the Public Services Federation (women, immigrants and LGBT policies) as well as the role of the Public Services Federation. 

Prominent among the workshops were: how to negotiate equality plans within businesses, sustainable mobility, occupational health, union elections, employment regulation procedural processes and collective bargaining.

There was also time for some fun, to which end a “Festival of Alternatives” had been organised.
