AFFILIATE YOUR UNION WITH CAMPAIGN AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
Are you a member of a trade union or students union? If so, we need your help! We want to build the widest possible coalition of forces to campaign for action on climate change. Involving our unions is an important part of this.
Proposing a motion
Proposing motions of affiliation to CCC is a good way of raising the issue, and of tapping into activist (and financial) support.
You can download a model motion, asking your union to affiliate to the campaign here.
How will this benefit your union?
Climate change is is occuring right now and begining to impact negatively on peoples lives and the environment across the globe. Here in the UK the effects of climate change can have a direct impact on jobs. Tackling climate change at the root through greening the economy is a direct and positive way in which climate activism and job provision meet. As we are always strengthening our affiliations with Union groups through networking events and conferences. If you are already affiliated or want to be then get in touch to organise a representative to attend an event.

One Million Climate Jobs Campaign
The one million Climate jobs campaign was set up by trade unionists within the Campaign against Climate Change, and is supported by a number of national trade unions, including PCS, CWU, UCU and TSSA. The One Million Climate Jobs report received inspiration from the struggle of workers at the Vestas wind turbine factory on the Isle of Wight, who occupied their factory when it was slated for closure in mid 2009.
We have hosted three national conferences which have brought together Trade Unionists, environmental campaigners, activists and academics to discuss the way in which Trade Unions can be part of the campaign to save the planet.
