Young Workers' Lab 🚀

The Young Workers' Lab is a new pop-up research center in the Future World of Work division of UNI Global Union.

Our aim is to test how digital technologies, data, and power can be shared to democratize access to the collective value of the digital age.

Our research engages with young workers, trade unions big and small, technologists, government, civil society, business, academics, and activists. Check out our articles below for news on what we've accomplished so far. The question that guides us is:

How can digital technologies be used by young workers and unions to improve young workers’ job quality and voice in the digital world of work?
