Support UCU’s TUC motion for a 30-minute solidarity climate stoppage
Millions of school students across the globe have struck for climate justice. Their action has forced governments across the world and the UK parliament to declare a climate emergency. We need to keep up this pressure. If this is not achieved then the earth’s climate will have passed a dangerous tipping point with temperatures rising up to 4 degrees by the end of the century – in the lifetime of young people alive today.
Climate is a trade union issue. Trade unionists must play a central role in shaping the way society’s economic and social organisation meets the needs of future generations and the planet.
