Making our workplaces Red, Black and Green
Update1 : read report summarising the discussions had.
MM2 Fri: 10:30-11:30
A short, introductory discussion outlining the history of ecological struggles in the workplace. This will be followed by an open debate/discussion focusing on some key practical issues: - How do we challenge the perceived divide between the workers and ecological movement? Why is it important? - What are the limitations of “Green” trade unions and how do we re-connect with rank-and-file workers? - What could a “Green New Deal” mean for us? How do we interact with workers tied into the carbon economy?
