2nd Regional Conference - DECENT WORK FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Jan 2011

In this resolution, the ITUC-AP Conference recognises that youth are an important segment of the workforce. Despite this, opportunities and access for free and/or affordable and quality education and training are not always available for youth. All young people in the AP region share common problems such as scarcity of decent job opportunity, high unemployment rate, lack of education and skill training, and so on.

The Conference adopts the Youth Charter as guidelines for youth activities and commits the ITUC-AP and affiliates and GUFs to: fully support activities of the ITUC-AP Youth Committee and affiliates’, encourage establishments of youth structures at all levels, undertake training and retraining activities for young workers, promote greater integration of youth within union structures, encourage development of policies for youth employment schemes, promote gender balance in all youth activities, and so on.
