The Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union conferences have brought together hundreds of Trade Unionists to discuss the role that the Trade Union movement can play in the fight against Climate Change. The conference took place against a backdrop that is even more urgent than the loast two: 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.

The conference was held by the CCC's trade union working group. For more information, please visit the CCCTU Wordpress blog.
