A new global federation of trade unions has made environmental issues a key priority in a resolution adopted last week. The resolution also gives unions a mandate to collaborate with UN agencies on green issues. Meanwhile, European unions body ETUC has called for a binding EU target to cut greenhouse gas emissions 75% by 2050. Tackling climate change will bring job opportunities, ETUC said. It also called for a tripartite dialogue to address negative social effects of restructurings linked to emission reduction efforts. See press release, resolution and ETUC statement.
