Trades Hall - COVID Safe Plan in place

Climate Action for Unionists November Course

Climate Justice RallyFor unionists, it is more urgent than ever that we campaign for climate action and hold governments to account. Workers are already on the frontlines of climate change – we protect and rebuild communities affected by natural disasters, we give care to those affected by heatwaves and bushfire smoke, and we’re working in increasingly extreme weather.

This course will teach you how unionists can climate proof workplaces, and drive climate action campaigns.

This course is open to union activists based in Victoria/Melbourne. THIS COURSE WILL BE RUN IN PERSON AT TRADES HALL WITH COVID SAFE PRACTICES IN PLACE.

Course Content

This course comprises four discrete modules broadly covering the science behind climate change, the policy solutions, why climate change matters for workers, and how workers/unionists can become agents in climate change campaigns, including campaigns for a just energy transition.   There is a focus on developing industrial tools which, integrated with WHS legislation and organising strategies, effectively assist workers in climate-proofing their workplaces.

Key Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course participants will be able to: 

  • Explain why action on climate is urgent and why workers need to be involved in education and action around climate change.

  • Identify the impact climate change is already having on workplaces and how unions have responded to date.

  • Identify the opportunities and risks around energy transition.

  • Frame climate change as a critical issue for unionists and confidently address workers’ fears and doubts so climate messaging is consistent across the movement.

  • Integrate WHS and industrial strategies into organising and campaigning around climate change at work.

Please note: this course is also being offered in October as single modules delivered every Tuesday night from 6:30pm till 8pm. If you would prefer this timing, please click here to RSVP.

Digital Content Meeting - NOVEMBER

We are organising to prevent people being drawn into the lies and misinformation of the alt-right. There are workers that are being led into dangerous beliefs and unwittingly stand with racists and bigots. 

We know that we are not going to see social media giants take action against the disinformation that is spreading on their platforms so we need to ensure that we take the fight where it is being fought. Workers rights, healthcare and education are central to our beliefs and are worth fighting for.

We're gonna jump on Zoom and keep battling against the worst and most cynical groups online.

Want to take the fight to the alt-right online? RSVP below! 

We Volunteers

We Are Union. We are a movement of people standing together for a just and equitable Victoria where:

  • all people are respected and valued, 
  • all working people are organised, safe, and winning at work

We organise our communities to build support for union, industrial, and social campaigns, and we're excited to have you on board.
