Climate Change and Labour: The Need for a "Just Transition"
International Journal of Labour Research 2010, Vol. 2, Issue 2. Climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing trade unions today and all over the world they have been working very hard to put employment and their role at the centre of climate change policy debates both at national and international levels. Together with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the Bureau for Workers Activities in the ILO (ACTRAV) organized a workshop in the framework of the Global Union Research Network (GURN) in March 2010 on this issue. Researchers both from trade unions and academia gathered to discuss employment aspects of climate change, and the papers in this issue of the International Journal of Labour Research are based on articles presented and discussed in that workshop.Size 5.5 MB - File type application/pdf
