This European guide for union reps with an interest in environmental issues is intended to be used as a tool to help trade unionists at all levels to better understand the importance of sustainable development in their own industries, workplaces and unions. The guide includes information on the tools already available, many examples of union good practice in the UK and across the EU, and information on the rights and policies we want to promote. We hope and demonstrate the value of working people's voices in this vital area. Whether through union-only initiatives or collective bargaining, we hope this guide will give inspiration to union representatives and provide a basis for unions to work together to promote solutions for people and the planet and not just for profit.
