Just Transition

 

We are delighted to invite you to attend a seminar at RGU on Tuesday 4 September. This event is free to attend and lunch will be provided.  Our own Prof Adam Price will be speaking at this event.  Adam is an active member of the Aberdeen University Climate Concern Group, and was the Aberdeen UCU Environment Officer.

So, what is it all about? UCU is a signatory, along with other trade unions and third sector organisations, to a joint statement on a Just Transition to a low carbon economy. The statement recognises that the necessity to move to a modern low-carbon economy needs also to protect workers’ jobs and livelihoods.

We’ve arranged a seminar on a Just Transition on Tuesday 4 September at 12.30 at Robert Gordon University and would like to invite you to attend and find out more about what a Just Transition means and what UCU and other unions can do to ensure the transformation protects workers and leads to fairer economy.

The seminar will be chaired by Lesley McIntosh from RGU UCU with speakers including Mary Church, Head of Campaigns at Friends of the Earth Scotland; Eurig Scandrett, vice-president, UCU Scotland; Tommy Campbell, regional industrial organiser, Unite the union; and Professor Adam Price, Aberdeen UCU and Aberdeen University climate concern group.

Tuesday 4 September 12.30 – 3.00pm, Room N204, Sir Ian Wood Building, Robert Gordon University, buffet lunch provided. To attend please email Murdo Mathison mmathison@ucu.org.uk to confirm your attendance - and please let Murdo know if you have any dietary requirements. 

(The No 1 bus will take you from King Street straight to RGU – just jump on at the stop across the road from the main gate.  The 1143 gets you there for 1219 – perfect timing!)
