in the calendar module:

timegm(tuple)
An unrelated but handy function that takes a time tuple such as
returned by the gmtime() function in the time module, and returns the
corresponding Unix timestamp value, assuming an epoch of 1970, and the
POSIX encoding. In fact, time.gmtime() and timegm() are each others'
inverse.

hope this will be helpfull
