Every year UNISON South West sends one lucky young member to Cuba on a solidarity visit. UNISON is affiliated to the Cuba Solidarity Campaign (CSC) and our friends there invite union members to visit the country to learn about the history of the revolution, take part in volunteer work and enjoy a few restful days on a Caribbean beach!
The lucky member selected will be required to raise the profile of the CSC around the South West with other UNISON members and help fundraise towards next year’s trip.
Any young member interested should email UNISON South West’s Chris Musgrave at C.Musgrave@unison.co.uk by 30 April 2015 and include:
- UNISON membership number
- UNISON branch
- Position held in Branch (if any)
- 500 words (max) saying: why you want to go, what you know about Cuba, and what you will do after the experience.
UNISON cannot guarantee a place to any applicant. Priority will be given to UNISON young members that are active in their branch or those expressing a genuine interest becoming involved in UNISON.
