Campaign Against Climate Change 3rd Trade Union Conference 13 March 2010 09.02.10


The Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union conference 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.

13 March 2010, South Camden Community School, London

Speakers include: Tony Kearns (CWU), Chris Baugh (PCS), RMT, Graham Pietersan (UCU), Jonathan Neale (CaCC), Vestas Worker, Larry Lohman (Cornerhouse), Prof. Barbara Harriss-White, John Stewart (HACAN) plus others.

Along with the PCS, CWU and UCU we have launched a campaign for 1 million climate jobs. We are arguing that government investment can create jobs that reduce Greenhouse emissions and provide jobs. Our pamphlet arguing this case has already sold thousands of copies and is into its second print run. Come to this conference and join the debate about how we can win the fight for a million climate jobs.

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

Please consider asking your Trade Union branch / region to support and send a delegation to the conference.
