Sheffield TUC is urging ALL trade unionists to get active on the climate as we build for COP 26.
“THERE’S NO JOBS ON A DEAD PLANET” says Sharon Burrow, Gen Sec of the International TUC. Trades Unions have to be at the table fighting for green jobs, a just transition – and real action, not just words on climate change. As we make the huge changes necessary to green our economy we also must demand transformational change to make our society fairer as well as greener, raising living standards of the many whilst providing a cleaner, safer and greener environment – and saving our planet.
All this is possible but trade unionists have to fight to get this message heard. Sheffield TUC is an active partner in the Sheffield Climate Campaign Umbrella Group which is planning a number of activities over the coming weeks as we build for COP 26 in Glasgow in November. Please do make sure your Branch gets involved

Saturday 6th November Sheffield COP26 March and Rally – Bring your banners!!
It’s really important that trade unions are visible and noisy on this big march in Sheffield on Saturday 6th November. Workers have the most to lose from climate change yet the most to gain if we get the changes we need and ensure no worker is left behind. Our message must be “Green Jobs, a Just Transition, and a fairer and greener society for the future”. Please do make sure your union branch is involved and is represented on the march. We will be joined by many climate and environment activists and many concerned citizens who maybe have little awareness of trade unions, so our presence will be even more important!
