Why do you need YouthPro?
Protection in the workplace is a necessity for anyone with an existing job or anyone who enters the workplace for the first time. With your YouthPro membership you enjoy affordable protection and access to information regarding your rights as a young person in the workplace.
The need for this category was born among young people who must undergo, among other, practical training as part of their studies. They need some labour law assistance, but they do not necessarily have the funds to pay the full fee for Solidarity membership. With YouthPro, we provide for this need while we offer so much more for the young working person.
Solidarity Youth received several complaints from which it became evident that young people, such as clerks, are often the victims of exploitation in the workplace. Out of desperation to make a good impression of to obtain a permanent position, clerks are often willing to perform duties which are not included in their service contract or they work under unlawful circumstances.
YouthPro will teach you how to handle these difficult situations and will equip you with knowledge on your rights in the workplace with an emphasis on how important it is to belong to a trade union.
