ITUC Climate Strategy Day in Glasgow


(15 November 2021) On 7 November, the ITUC hosted a Trade Union Climate Strategy Day at the Strathclyde University in Glasgow, in the context of the COP 26.

 The conference gathered trade unionists from across the world, including international federations’ representatives from PSI, ITF and IndustriALL Global.

The main objective of the meeting was to discuss strategies in order to include more concretely trade unions’ demands into the climate policy debate and to reaffirm the central role that trade unions have in the social and economic transition around the globe.

During the meeting, different breakout groups were created in order to approach and to debate diverse issues at stake at the International level. For instance, debating on Just Transition in the NDCs; on Structural Economic Change; and on Just Transition in the transport and industry sectors. A breakout group also provided for reporting from affiliates on Just Transition in their countries.
