The Union Advent: 5 Dec

05 Dec 2009, By

A survey of over 1300 union reps carried out by the Labour Research Department in 2009 found extensive evidence of union involvement in climate change measures in the workplace.

Across the private and public sectors negotiated agreements, climate committees, audits and inspections, and training are all ways in which union environmental reps can act as catalysts for climate action at work. The survey found examples of over 200 joint management-union committees discussing climate related issues, over 150 working parties covering environment/climate change issues and over 80 examples of joint management-unions environment committees
