For A Million Climate Jobs

The Third Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union conference will bring together hundreds of Trade Unionists to discuss how we can campaign for climate justice following the failure of the Copenhagen Talks.

In particular, we will look at the Campaign for a Million Climate Jobs, many of our speakers have been part of creating the excellent pamphlet which has been produced with the support of the CWU, PCS, UCU and TSSA.

It will also be an opportunity to hear from those who took part in the Vestas occupation and the magnificant climate protests in Copenhagen last December. The format will be a "teach in" style to allow maximum participation, with breakout sessions on "How do we campaign for a million jobs", "The Climate Emergency Demands", "Organising at work" and the "International Movement post Copenhagen".

We hope that the meeting will bring together Trade Unionists with environmental activists, so that we can all learn from each other. You do not have to be a Trade Unionist to attend!

For more information, please visit http://cacctu.wordpress.com where you can download leaflets, motions and registration forms.

Registration is £10 or £5 (low waged or unemployed).

There will be plenty of campaign stalls and book stalls at the event.
