Time to Act! National 1-day Conference in Sheffield 19th September

Please support the CACCTUG (Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union Groups) National One-day Conference in Sheffield on Saturday 19th September. 

The fight for a cleaner greener planet and an end to carbon gas emissions is part of the wider fight for a fairer freer future for all of us. Investing in green energy, insulation, public transport and zero emission council housing  IS also the socialist programme of sustainable growth we need as an alternative to austerity and will create at least 1M good jobs in the process. Linking environmentalists, trade unionists and left of centre politics makes a formidable popular alliance committed  to changing our society from the disasters of neo-liberalism – and saving our planet at the same time!

Sheffield is easy to get to; it only costs £10 waged/£5 unwaged; it’s open to all; and you’ll learn a lot!

Why not book your place now? Please see more details below and the flyer attached
