Recognizing the young members represent a significant percentage of Teamsters membership, this national Youth Committee educates, unites and provides a voice.
Uniting youth coast to coast.
Who are we?
The Committee is made up of young members of our union, aged under 35, who are prepared to devote time to meetings and activities and who want to invest themselves in our union, and in their workplace community.
The Committee is made up of at most three youth appointed by each Joint Council, one representative of the TCYC and one representative of the TCYC-MWED.
We are a powerful resource for the union!

What we can do?
