Older Workers

Empowering Older Workers: A Comprehensive Support Guide


At The Workers Union, we recognize the invaluable contribution of older workers to the workforce. With a wealth of experience and a diverse skill set, they play a crucial role in the fabric of our economy. However, navigating the evolving landscape of employment can pose unique challenges for this demographic. That’s why we’ve developed this Supporting Older Workers Guide – an essential resource dedicated to ensuring their rights are protected and their voices are heard.

Why Older Mature Workers Need Unions

In an age where the workforce is continuously transforming, older workers often find themselves at a crossroads. From adapting to new technologies to facing age-related biases, these challenges can be daunting. Unions act as a bastion of support, advocating for fair treatment and equal opportunities. By joining a union, older workers gain a support mechanism, ensuring their concerns are addressed and their contributions are valued.

Supporting Older Workers

Our commitment to supporting mature workers is unwavering. We offer a range of services and resources designed to empower and assist them in various aspects of their work life. From legal advice on employment rights to professional job search pages that are updated daily, we are dedicated to providing a supportive environment that fosters growth and security.

Rights for Older Workers

Understanding one’s rights is the cornerstone of empowerment. We provide comprehensive information and guidance on the rights of older workers. This includes aspects such as fair wages, reasonable accommodations, protection against discrimination, and access to support. Our aim is to equip older workers with the knowledge and tools they need to advocate for themselves in the workplace.
