987 Youth Committee

Attention Local 987 members aged 35 and under!
We need your help

The youth committee is made up of passionate young people – the future of the union – who are committed to building solidarity and awareness for Teamsters Union 987 in fresh and innovative ways.

Young workers in Alberta today face many challenges – low wages, increasing costs for housing, food and transportation, a changing economy, the fear of lay-offs and rising unemployment.

These youthful Teamsters Union 987 members are devoted to social justice and active in finding ways to create better lives for young workers. Their contributions are not only to the labour movement, but equally to their communities and workplaces.



The 987 youth committee strives to build a brighter future today by creating a stronger community through engaging the next generation of Teamsters. We achieve this by raising awareness and recognizing that all members are equal and through solidarity, collective action works.

Are you ready to join the movement of youth within Teamsters Union 987?
