ACTU President to talk on climate change
ACTU President Ged Kearney will give a presentation at the Bendigo campus on the union movement’s position on addressing climate change.
Unions have been actively involved in the debate on climate change for many years. In recent months through the work of the ACTU, unions have worked hard to ensure that the carbon price package addressed a range of issues critical to working people while at the same time addressing the environmental issues facing our society.
“The rest of the world is already moving to cut their carbon emissions, and delay for Australia will only cost the economy and the environment more in the future”, says Kearney.
Kearney, formerly President of the Australian Nurses’ Federation, has been President of the ACTU since July 2010. The ACTU’s position is an important contribution to discussions on dealing with climate change in Australia. There will be time devoted to answering questions after her talk.
