Young members’ weekend

Every year, more than 100 UNISON young members from across the UK gather in the spring to find out more about the union and, more importantly, how they can play a part in the union’s campaigning to defend public services.

This year’s young members’ weekend will take place on 15-17 May in Nottingham – just over a week after the general election.

It will come against a background unremitting attacks on public services, and on young people, so one focus will be a practical campaigning activity, including approaching members of the public to get our case across.

It is a great chance to meet, work, and socialise with other young members and learn some key skills.

Weekend costs – including accommodation, meals, travel, childcare and other appropriately incurred expenses – will be met by UNISON

To take advantage of this opporulunity, you must be under 27 years of age on 17 May, and should contact your branch secretary or your regional young members contact for details.

Young members’ regional contacts

Alternativey, you can email their full name, branch name, and membership number to no later than 20 March.

Please note that numbers are limited, and registering an interest does not guarantee you a place at the event.
