TIME TO ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE
29 November: Join the Trade Unions / Climate Jobs bloc on the People's March for Climate, Jobs and Justice
Join us in London with trade union activists and supporters from around the country in a march for action on climate, justice and jobs.
We are calling for urgent action on climate change:
- creating jobs through massive public investment in renewable energy, insulation and public transport;
- moving investment from risky 'stranded assets' in fossil fuel industries and into a sustainable economy, while protecting workers' rights;
- a fair international climate deal to ensure a safe planet for future generations
Stand up against the ideology-driven cuts causing major job losses in solar energy, insulation and other industries and preventing action on climate change.
Bring your union banners on 29th November!

One Million Climate Jobs
Tackling the Environmental and Economic Crises
The Million Climate Jobs pamphlet is a fantastic tool for mapping the kind of climate justice future we should all be working towards. - Naomi Klein, author This Changes Everything
To halt climate change we need drastic cuts in the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases we put into the air. That means leaving most of the existing reserves of high carbon fuels in the ground. We need workers to insulate and retrofit homes and buildings to conserve energy. We need workers to build enough renewable power to meet all our energy needs. And we need workers to maintain the new systems the future of humanity depends on.This booklet calculates and explains how we can allow for a just energy transition for workers, society and the planet.
This is the third edition of the ‘One Million Climate Jobs’ report, written with the support of trade unions and environmental groups. It has been completely revised, expanded and updated.
You can download the report or order copies for delivery (discounts for bulk purchases).
The Online Technical Companion is now available for download. This contains the footnotes, calculations and additional supporting documentation for the report.
This report has been produced by the Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union group in conjunction with the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU), Communication Workers Union (CWU), Fire Brigades Union (FBU), National Union of Students (NUS), Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), Transport Salaried Staffs Associationa (TSSA), Unite, the union (UNITE), and the University and College Union (UCU)
The pamphlet was launched at the The International Fight for Climate Jobs Conference on Sat 20 Sept in London - details here.
