Northeast Regional Labor Convergence on Climate

Saturday, November 17, 2018 10:00am to 5:30pm
Labor Education Center, 50 Labor Center Way, New Brunswick, NJ

 

The Labor Education Action Research Network in conjunction with the Labor Network for Sustainability invites union elected officials, staff, and rank and file to join a regional Labor Convergence on Climate. The purpose of the Convergence is to bring together committed trade unionists who want to make the labor movement a force for climate protection.

The major goal of the Convergence is to produce an action agenda for labor around climate change, and to draft a strategy for organizing around that agenda.
