Meeting – Nicaraguan trade unions and the Sandinista government
Wednesday, June 22, 7pm
Unison Cymru, Custom House St, Cardiff
Organised by the Wales Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign and Unison Cymru
The Campaign has been working for several years to create a link between Unison Cymru and the Nicaraguan public sector union UNE. In principle the Unison Cymru International Committee has decided to pursue twinning with UNE, and they are discussing the practical steps at the moment. The next step will come in June, when Domingo Perez, the General Secretary of UNE, visits Cardiff.
Domingo has sent a personal invitation to the meeting, filmed by Campaign member David McKnight in Nicaragua. See his invitation:
The Sandinista government has transformed the conditions for unions in Nicaragua, and their ability to organise. The Campaign wrote about the conditions facing trade unions in Nicaragua after our last visit. See here for the article.
