Vuyisile Mini Winter Schools

NALSU has been central to the organisation and delivery of the Vuyisile Mini Winter Schools since their launch in 2015. Funded by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), each winter school brings together approximately 40 participants from a range of unions – mainly from East London, Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage – for four days of discussions and debates. The participants are fully-funded, and reside at Rhodes University residences for the duration. The winter school series is named after Vuyisile Mini, a well-known Eastern Cape trade unionist who was particularly active in Port Elizabeth and who was executed in 1964 for his role in the anti-apartheid armed struggle.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic the next Vuyisile Mini Winter School will take place in 2021. Details to follow.

NALSU has planned and is delivering the Winter School in partnership with the Departments of Sociology and Industrial Sociology, History, and Economics and Economic History.
