Supporting the British Airways strikers

DSCF0486 At the Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union group meeting last weekend, supporters of the group voted to support the British Airways strikers who were taking part in their second strike. A message of support was sent to the picket lines at Heathrow, together with a cheque towards the hardship fund.

Despite some in the environmental movement who believe that workers in carbon intensive industries are part of the problem, we believe that there needs to be a Just Transition towards a zero-carbon economy. To do this successfully will require a strong Trade Union movement, and a victory for the BA workers would be a victory for the whole movement.
