Unison for Cuba
Unison delegates reaffirmed their support for Cuba at their annual national delegates’ conference in June 2019.
Moving the motion, Scottish Region Convener, Lilian Macer, said: “As a health worker, I recognise since the Cuban Revolution that they have achieved a world-class health system on a fraction of the budget of most other countries, and despite suffering 60 years of blockade.”
Isle of Wight delegate Yve White said: “In Cuba, nobody walks barefoot, dies of hunger, is illiterate from the age of six, or has to pay for education.
“In Cuba, the trade unions play an active role in all aspects of life,” said North West delegate Tracy Delaney. “They are the organisations that helped draft Cuba’s Labour Code legislation. They were consulted throughout the process, made amendments, and ensured workers’ voices are heard.”
Scottish Young Members Committee member, Ryan McLaughlin, who participated in the May Day Brigade, reminded delegates of the Trump administration’s ultimate goal: “to deny the Cuban people their right to self-determination and to create another puppet of the US government.”
