Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union Conference 2010

13th March, South Camden Community School, London NW1

The Campaign against Climate Change’s third Trade Union Conference will take place in Camden on Saturday 13th March from 11:00am until 4:30pm. With little commitment from Government to create green jobs post Copenhagen and in economic climate putting pressure on employment, the Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union group is setting out a framework to push the Government to develop climate jobs and support workers.

Previous conferences have brought together hundreds of Trade Unionists to discuss the role that the Trade Union movement can play in the fight against Climate Change. Speakers for 2010’s CCC Trade Union conference include:

Tony Kearns (CWU), Manuel Cortes (TSSA), Chris Baugh (PCS), Prof. Barbara Harriss-White, Jonathan Neale (Million Green Jobs Commission, CCC), John Stewart (Airportwatch), Graham Petersen (UCU), and Larry Lohman (Cornerhouse).

The failure to agree a serious strategy for dealing with climate change at the Copenhagen Climate Conference underlines this problem, and why the CCC Trade Union group will push the Government to employ a million unemployed workers to save the climate.

Registration £10 for workers, or £5 low-paid or unemployed
