A Short History of Green Unionism: Sunflower Alliance Meeting
July 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Gifford Hartman will speak about exemplary moments in labor history that help us imagine possibilities for breaking the current jobs vs. climate-and-community impasse. For one example: the actions of the petrochemical workers at Porto Marghera in Italy, whose struggles from the 1960s to the 1980s arguably made them the world’s first worker-ecologists: “They fought against the bosses, but also against the destruction of the workers’ health and environmental contamination.” (For a deeper dive, see this subtitled documentary: Porto Maghera: The Last Firebrands.)
