A New Lucas Plan for post-pandemic socially useful jobs?

13th May 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join this online event on how worker-led industrial conversion to deal with the coronavirus pandemic is a model for the future.

This webinar will discuss how we can learn from the Covid crisis to create workers and community plans for social and ecologically useful production as a way to address the pre-existing multiple crises of militarisation, climate change, and robotisation.

Speakers include:

Phil Asquith – former Lucas Aerospace Shop Stewards Combine member.

Hilary Wainwright – founding editor Red Pepper, co-author, with Dave Elliott of ‘The Lucas Plan: a new trade unionism in the making’, fellow of the Transnational Institute’.

Representatives from Green Jobs Oshawa in Canada on their call to repurpose the former General Motors car plant to a public manufacturing facility
