2014 IATSE Young Workers Conference

The third Young Workers Conference was held on October 2-4, 2014, at the Hilton Portland in Portland, Oregon. Like the 2012 conferences, it was a full house with 100 attendees representing 60 Locals from both the U.S. and Canada, and from a wide variety of crafts.

The 2014 Portland conference encouraged young workers to get active within their local union, politically, in their community, or in their workplace. Guest speakers and instructors focused on the idea of activism.

Two keynote speakers who provided valuable lessons to the Portland audience were AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Elizabeth Shuler and Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain.

The first Conference in Philadelphia taught practical leadership skills and empowering members 35 and under in their Local and at their jobsite or workplace.
