Young UNISON members gather to plan campaigns

Book now for UNISON’s annual national young members weekend on 13-15 May

More than 100 UNISON young members will gather in Leicester on 13-15 May discuss how they can play a part in the union’s campaigning to defend public services.

The annual young members’ weekend will take place against the background of “a Conservative government hell-bent on demolishing public services, and continuing with failed policies for young people,” says national young members’ officer Gary Williams.

One focus of the weekend will be a practical campaigning activity, including approaching members of the public to get our case across.

It will also give young trade unionists to find out more about UNISON as well as meet, work, and socialise with other young members and learn key skills.

Members wishing to attend must be under 27 years of age on 15 May, and should contact their branch secretary about the opportunity.

Alternatively, they can get in touch with their regional young members contact (see here for details), or by emailing their full name, branch name, and membership number to .

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

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