Latest booklet - Union action on climate change - a trade union guide

Dire warnings that time is running out to tackle rising carbon emissions and global temperatures have propelled the climate change crisis to the top of both union and political agendas. This booklet aims to help trade union reps play their part in tackling the climate emergency and other environmental problems. It looks in detail at: the causes and consequences of climate change; the importance of ensuring a Just Transition and decent jobs in moving towards a low-carbon economy; the role of green union reps; trade union policy on energy generation; union policy, advice, training and action on transport and air pollution; waste and recycling and workplace action to reduce waste. Case studies and examples of how union reps are taking action at their workplaces are detailed throughout.
