“It’s a disturbing feeling when you feel lonely and unemployed”
UCUSA, as the “Union of Mission” provides a sense of stability and ease, knowing that there is a place to turn to in order to get support, help, contacts, ideas, and other resources.
Formed by the Unemployed for

The ‘lone’ feeling.
It feels like the world has shut its doors to your face when you are unemployed and have been looking for a job but to no avail. You ask yourself too many questions that are without answers, you even doubt if you were meant to live on this earth. Some people go as far as becoming suicidal just because they always witness ‘opportunities’ passing-by.
Well, you are not alone, we are here for you. We believe in the saying that ” We are Stronger together” and it is exactly for this reason that we invite you to join us so we may find means to employment, together. Nobody will do it for us, except us. Let us bring together what we have (skills, knowledge, experience, positive attitude, collected donations, etc), identify a ‘gap’ in the market and ‘make it’ like everyone else.
Our approach is ‘What’s Strong’ instead of ‘What’s wrong’, meaning that we are looking at building from what we have as ‘strong’ rather than what we have as ‘wrong’. We unleash our strong skills, deep knowledge, strong abilities, strong POWER, etc.
How much does membership cost?
For standard unemployed citizens, the membership fee is only R20/month and for those who pledge their support and wish to become members of our union, their membership fee is minimized at R50/month.
Why do I have to pay membership?
Without seed being sown, no matter how much the seed is, you will never see any harvest. It’s common cause that in order for our mission to be accomplished, a small seed has to be sown, moreover this is how one may express their determination to succeed, by just a small fee with an abundance of invaluable and unbelievable benefits.
Can I cancel membership after employment?
Yes, you may, however, we encourage members to support the cause after we successfully found a job for them. This can be in the form of upgrading to the Solidarity Membership.
Will I still enjoy benefits of discounts?
Yes, of course, you will still enjoy the benefits at our network of participating outlets as the Solidarity Member of our Union
Can I bring social matters out of employment scope?
Yes, part of the benefits of becoming our member, is our intervention on behalf of our members in matters of social ills and consumer issues.
Can I mobilise other Unemployed Citizens?
As a mission-driven union robustly attending to the problem of unemployment, of course, we do encourage members to mobilize other members. Remember, we are even stronger together.
