The future of the union movement in Asia today depends on the ability of the unions to organise, respond and address issues faced by young workers. Recent trends relating to labour market participation among young workers show a marked increase in the precarious nature of work, vulnerability, unemployability and unpaid work, further leading to alienation and disengagement. To increase its effort to actively organise, represent young voices in unions, workplaces and within policy setting processes, PSI and its affiliates committed to formulate necessary engagements in 2017 at the 30th World Congress in Geneva.
