Unions from both South and North have developed this Trade Union Programme for a Public, Low Carbon Energy Future that aims to build support for reclaiming electricity systems to public ownership and control in order to address the climate emergency in ways that create jobs and address energy poverty.

This the result of the work of a Trade Union Task Force consisting of more than 30 unions.

Focusing mainly on the power sector, the Program is an attempt to rally the international trade union movement behind an ambitious political effort to bring about a fundamental shift in climate and energy policy.

This shift is needed both to correct the failures of the market model and to ensure that the energy transition is socially just, economically viable, and effective in terms of reaching climate goals.
