This course will run over two mondays and is the second instance of this new training course for workplace reps from the manufacturing, power and other sectors. It is supported by the region's Low Carbon Task Force. It is designed to support workplace reps to plan for a low-carbon future for our region, especially focusing on defending 28,000 jobs in our energy intensive industries.
The course is designed to stimulate responses to the question: How to protect and develop our foundation industries and deliver the jobs, skills and training for a just transition to a low carbon economy?
It will help to equip trades unions and workers with information and ideas about how to respond to the implementation of the government's Industrial and Clean Growth policies. One thing is for sure: 'business as usual' is not a viable strategy.
The venue is fully accessible.
