We are always stronger together. When workers act and speak together, there is nothing we can’t accomplish; unions are the embodiment of that fact. Unions enable workers to defend their rights and fight for dignity, equality, and respect in the workplace. Unionised workplaces are often safer, and with better pay, terms and conditions.
Unions are also a powerful tool in the struggle for climate justice. Many unions actively campaign on climate issues and have even included environmentalist demands in their disputes with employers. Going into the future, Unions will have a vital role to play in organising a general strike for the climate.
