'A good platform for younger members to discuss our specific issues, and understand how Nautilus fits into the wider Union movement' — a Nautilus Young Maritime Professional member's perspective on last year's GFTU festival.
The first YMP forum of 2017 coincides with the renamed New Generation Festival for young workers organised annually by the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU).
In particular, the Nautilus Forum provides an opportunity for young members to engage in discussions on the specific challenges facing young workers in the maritime profession; on how to promote the maritime career to young people; to identify the organising needs of young members and to encourage their participation in the Union’s activities; and to provide guidance to the Council on these issues.
Open to all young members (UK, NL, CH).
The next Forum takes place at the New Generation Festival organised by the GFTU.
DATE: 7 - 9 April
PLACE: GFTU, Quorn Grange Hotel, 88 Wood Lane Quorn
