Copenhagen – your help wanted

leave a comment »

Owing to a mini-breakthrough at Copenhagen concerning the inclusion of the need for a ‘just transition’ in the negotiating texts, so that the transition to a green economy is properly planned with regard to jobs and skills, the TUC is asking people to let Ed Miliband, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, know of workers’ support for the concept and requesting that he lobby hard in favour of the words ‘just transition’ being included in the final ministerial agreement.

You can find a draft e-mail to Miliband – and further information about what a just transition means, as well as the significance of the mini-breakthrough, at ToUChstone here.
