The 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 this booklet is twofold: to inform workers and workers’ organisations about the potential of a ‘just transition’, and also to provide practical information on how to ensure this for workers. The transition to a more climate-friendly world is unavoidable, and workers’ voices must be heard.
The 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.
