Free and active unions have a vital part to play in the just transition to a zero-carbon future. The anti-union and anti-strike legislation designed to suppress union activity is a direct obstacle to a greener world.
Earth Strike UK: Empower the Unions is a new initiative by Earth Strike UK, supported by Free Our Unions. Empower the Unions aims to unite environmental activists and trade unionists to resist legislation that restricts our rights to organise and strike and empower unions to take the action necessary to safeguard our future.
Join us at 2pm on Sunday 27 June for an online rally to kick off this new campaign!
The rally will feature contributions from activists including:
• Janine Booth (Secretary, RMT Disabled Members’ Advisory Committee)
• Dave Smith (Blacklist Support Group)
• Verity Burgmann (Co-author of Green Bans, Red Union: The Saving of a City)
• Gregor Gall (Industrial relations professor and labour movement activist)
• Vicki Morris (Socialist activist involved in the Vestas wind turbine workers’ campaign in 2009, editor of the Save Vestas blog)
