Climate trade union conference today

Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union conference 2010

13 Mar 2010, 11:00 am

South Camden Community School, London NW1 1RG

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

The Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union 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.

Our previous conferences have been a great success, but our third occurs against a backdrop that is even more urgent. Working people face the twin threat of economic recession and climate disaster. The failure to agree a serious strategy for dealing with climate change at the Copenhagen Climate Conference underlines this problem.

Registration is £10 (waged) £5 (low-paid, unemployed).
