The TUC has launched a new GreenWorkplaces network for union green reps and activists.

Membership is free and allows you access to tips and resources, the latest news and events, along with details of training courses and workshops.

You can download case studies from other union activists who are taking action on green issues in their workplace and send in your own stories and comments to us.

In the above video Sarah Lewis explains a bit about her own activity as a green rep and explains why joining the network is a good idea.
