The Trade Unions Going Green – Environmental issues in the world of work booklet will help to put unions in a position to engage in dialogue for sustainable development policies, while representing the interests and needs of workers.
The purpose of the booklet is twofold:
- To inform workers and workers’ organisations about the potential of a just transition
- Provide practical information on how to ensure a just transition for workers
The transition to a more climate-friendly world is unavoidable, and workers’ voices must be heard. The Trade Unions Going Green booklet will help unions understand issues such as occupational health and safety, water pollution control, and reforestation, as well as provide simple tips for including these demands in collective bargaining.
