Conference/Discussion/Debate LABOR, THE ENVIRONMENT AND PUBLIC POWER Sunday October 14, 2001 9:30AM-3:00PM ILWU Local 34 5 Berry St./Embarcadero (Next To Pacbell Stadium) San Francisco The deregulation of energy over the last 5 years has led not only to the layoff of tens of thousands of unionized energy workers throughout the country but a growing chaos in price and supply of electricity and gas. It has threatened the ability of working people and small business people to pay their bills and keep in business. This policy of deregulation has also caused an alleged "shortage of energy". What are the real facts about this so called shortage of energy and what should labor and the environmental movement be doing about this issue? Shall the trade union movement base it's policies on the agenda of the oil and energy companies or does it need it's own program both to defend unionized jobs and to protect the environment. Will these issues be addressed at the national AFL-CIO convention the first week in December in Las Vegas? Join us in this timely conference to discuss and debate these issues and to map out a possible national program for working people and environmentalists that will set the agenda for the future.
