Workshop on February 16th : A Worker-Led Approach – Shaping the Future of Aviation

Workshop on February 16th : A Worker-Led Approach – Shaping the Future of Aviation

The aviation industry is currently facing big challenges to reduce its environmental impact.

Just recently, the European Transport Federation published the report “Landing Desirable Jobs” arguing strongly for a long-term sustainability perspective and a plan for decarbonisation led by the heart of the industry: its workers.

Aviation workers are speaking up and developing their own vision of the future for travel and the prospects for a worker-driven transformation of the sector.

We invite aviation sector employees to a conversation about their future and job security in a world of climate crisis. So-called Workers’ Assemblies (inspired by Citizen Assemblies) are one way of encouraging these conversations.

The objectives of the session will be to:
  • Bring together aviation workers concerned about a sustainable future for the sector from different countries, companies and trade unions to share experiences and network
  • Present and discuss the Aviation Workers’ Assembly concept
  • Strategise on how our network can join together to make progress towards a worker-led transition plan for aviation in 2023
Safe Landing, Transport & Environment and Stay Grounded warmly invite you to a workshop on this issue on February 16th, 4 pm CET / 3 pm GMT.

Join the discussion with trade unionists, aviation industry workers and NGOs working on transport and Just Transition.

  • Carlos Lopez de la Osa (Transport & Environment): Overview of challenges facing the aviation sector
  • Mila Shamku (European Transport Federation): Landing desirable jobs
  • Sam Mason (Public & Commercial Services Trade Union, UK): New Lucas Plan
  • Finlay Asher (Safe Landing, UK): Aviation Workers’ Assemblies

Please spread this invitation to potentially interested organisations or individuals!

All the best,

Finlay, Denise, Erin, Anne and Michaela
