Safe Climate: Seaford Street Stall

In the fight to eliminate insecure work, as unionists there is something we keep front of mind -- there is no secure job in an unsafe climate.

Scott Morrison's inaction on climate change means that workers are being left behind in the fight for a safe future. The federal government needs to get serious about responding to the climate crisis, by supporting workers and communities to transition into secure union jobs in clean energy industries.

Join us as we take action to demand job security for working people in the shift to net zero emissions!
