Sustainable jobs in a green economy: The role of trade unions and collective bargaining

A seminar
Tuesday 18th May 2010, London
1:30m – 4:15pm
At NUT Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD

Map here: http://www.hamilton-house.org.uk/contacts.htm

Organised by The Institute of Employment Rights

The Institute is honoured to have Victoria Lambropoulos, an academic at Deakin University, Australia present for this seminar. Victoria will bring expertise in the debates which have happened in Australia around what constructive role trade unions can take in collectively bargaining for a green economy. Victoria will be joined by Sian Jones from the CWU, and Sarah Pearce from the TUC’s Greenworkplaces project.

Climate change is an issue which affects all workers and one which trade unions have been strong in engaging their membership – this includes the increase in environmental audits and green workplace reps. So what role can unions play in creating and maintaining sustainable jobs? What way can unions engage in greening the economy?

Speakers: Sian Jones, CWU; Victoria Lambropoulos, Deakin University, Australia; Sarah Pearce, TUC.
