The TUC Congress 2015 agreed to support the People’s March for Climate, Justice and Jobs. During late November and early December 2015 there will be a number of marches and rallies across the word to mark the opening of the UN’s climate change treaty negotiations in Paris.
For trade unionists the four key demands that will be presented to the negotiations will be
- Raise ambition and realise the huge jobs potential of climate action.
- Hold global warming to below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
- Deliver on the $100 billion of climate finance a year by 2020 for developing countries to secure sufficient resources to adapt to climate change.
- Commit to securing a just transition and decent work for workers and their communities in the shift to a low carbon future.
As part of programme of activities Bristol Trades Union Council is urging trade unionists to support the Bristol event.
