Young members are the lifeblood of the trade union movement, they are the trade union leaders of tomorrow. 

Trade unions therefore need to intensify their efforts to integrate young members into trade unions, including them into decision-making structures.

Communication and systematic exchanges between young people throughout the world need to be established, with a view to promoting international trade union solidarity and to support and encourage more young people to participate actively in trade unions.

The fundamental aim of UNI Youth is to unite young people globally to assess common issues and concerns, to develop focused plans of action and to address them within the democratic framework of their trade unions.
