TIME FOR A GREEN PARTY TRADE UNION LIAISON OFFICER
I have decided to support this motion to go to the next Green Party of England and Wales conference in the spring.
GREEN PARTY TRADE UNION LIAISON OFFICER This conference believes that the Green Party England Wales (GPEW) shares many positive common aims and objectives with individual Trade Unions and the Trade Union movement as a whole in defending workers conditions and public services. We further recognise that the workers movement is becoming more open to our ideas on the need to change society to one that is sustainable economically, including the Green New Deal and our campaign for 1 million green jobs as against that of unfettered capitalism that is so wrecking people's lives. We note that some local parties and candidates have received positive support from a number of trade unions including moral, practical and financial support for our campaigns and individual candidates, but recognise that while this is an excellent development the party could gain further support if we were to established a dedicated Trade Union Liaison Officer in the Green Party (GPEW) at a national level and at some point also in the regions. This Conference therefore agrees to the creation of an elected Trade Union Liaison Officer on GPEX to co-ordinate the building of links with the Trade Union movement and individual Trade Unions including working closely with our own Green Party Trade Union Group.
