A New Lucas Plan: An Idea Whose Time Has Come?

A New Lucas Plan: An Idea Whose Time Has Come?

Function room, Yates Brighton pub, 59 West St, Brighton BN1 2RA (200m from The Brighton
Centre) 6pm September 11 2017 

In the 1970s, workers at Lucas Aerospace showed how livelihoods under threat could be saved by converting production from arms to socially useful products, such as wind turbines, hybrid car engines and medical equipment. 40 years later, militarism, environmental and economic crises make the Lucas workers’ inspiring ideas, and their approach of bottom-up planning even more necessary. Come and discuss the idea of a new Lucas Plan with one of the original Lucas Aerospace shop
stewards and other leading trade unionists at our TUC fringe meeting.

• Phil Asquith, former Lucas Aerospace shop steward
• Sam Mason, PCS/Lucas Plan group
• Manuel Cortes, TSSA

Chaired by Romayne Phoenix of the New Lucas Plan group
