More about the Young Members Forum

BECTU's Young Members Forum brings together members under the age of 35.

Open discussion

We formed in 2012 to help BECTU to understand and represent the needs and views of young members.

We also work to promote the benefits of union membership to young people and provide an avenue for frank and open discussion on industry-related issues.

We organise a number of social events throughout the year and support the union at trade shows and other external events.

We look forward to meeting more young members in BECTU and to helping you to get the best out of being part of the union.
