Greening Work

Jean will be speaking at a public meeting on Saturday 21st February, being organised by the Green Party Trade Union Group and focusing on the role of trade unions in building a green economy. Well worth a visit, I'd say....

Work-Life Balance, Greening Work and the Role of Trade Unions

The world is plunging headlong into recession, but could these difficult times provide the opportunity for a 'New Green Deal' or a 'Just Transition' from our current economic system, which cause economic & ecological disaster? What will this new economy be like? How can workers' rights be defended as it is built?
