Trade unionists climate action network formed

SYDNEY — A network of trade union activists concerned about climate change has formed in Sydney.

Trade Unionists Climate Action Network Sydney (TUCANS) has been meeting since March. The group has already endorsed the Climate Emergency Rally planned in Sydney on June 13.

At its May 7 meeting, the group added its name to a joint statement to PM Kevin Rudd condemning the amended Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.

TUCANS members have been exploring a range of ideas about future activities. It holds its next meeting on June 4, 6.30pm at the NSW Teachers Federation office, 23-33 Mary Street, Surry Hills.
