CND Trade Union Conference, 6.30pm, Wed 6th October STUC‏

UNISON Scottish Secretary Matt Smith is one of the speakers at the CND trade union conference on Wed 6 October, 6.30pm, at the STUC, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow. The ‘Trident, Jobs and the Economy’ conference will be the Scottish launch of a recently published CND report of the same name.

The report finds that rather than protecting jobs, Trident replacement will destroy many more jobs in conventional defence and jobs and services across all areas of public spending.

The speakers also include Arthur West (trade union and CND activist) and a speaker from UNITE.
