Stop the War Trade Union Conference

June 9 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

At the heart of the trade union movement lies international solidarity, which the Palestinians so desperately need. So it’s vital that we continue to work with the trade unions in recognition that war and peace are class issues and Palestine is very much a trade union issue.

So this Sunday (9 June), our Trade Union Conference will ask the key question: with the world at war, how do we stop the warmongers?

We’ve added two more important speakers to the line-up with Palestinian author and activist Ghada Karmi coming to address the conference as well as Muslim Association of Britain President, Raghad Altikriti.

Both are vital voices in the current, unstoppable movement for Palestine and we’re delighted they’re joining this important conference. Make sure you register now to secure your spot.

Sessions on the day include Building the Anti-War Movement at WorkThe Arms Trade, Palestine and the Trade Unions, Islamophobia, Prevent and Civil Liberties, Welfare Not Warfare: Defence Spending & the Jobs Myth and The Trade Unions & the Struggle for Peace – What’s Next?

Speakers Include:
Chris Smalls, Amazon Labour Union (US) // Suzan Abdul Salaam, New Union of Jerusalem // Jo Grady, UCU Gen Sec // Eddie Dempsey // Ghada Karmi // Alex Gordon, RMT President // Emma Rose, NEU President // Andy Hudd, ASLEF Vice President // Jim Kelly, London Unite (Personal Capacity) // Riccardo LaTorre, FBU National Officer // Andrew Feinstein, Former ANC MP & Author of Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade // Raghad Altikriti, MAB // Mohammed Shafiq, Chair of PCS Black Members Committee // Louise Regan, Chair of NEU International Committee // Liz Wheatley, Chair of Unison International Committee // Sean Vernell, UCU Exec // Lucia Pradella, UCU President of KCL // Jordan Rivera, Branch Sec UNISON Homerton Hospital and NEC // Adam Cochrane, CWU Members for Palestine // Sam Mason, CND Vice Chair (Trade Unions) // Lindsey German, StWC Convenor // Andrew Murray, StWC Vice President
