Energy, democracy, and unions: A discussion on the parallels of climate justice and union organizing


Join us as we go live with guests from Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (TUED), OrganizeUW, and Fossil Free UW (FFUW) to talk about the parallels, collaboration possibilities, and intersections among/between the climate and organized labour movements, especially how grassroots local union members have increasingly used their democratic labour power to further the cause of climate justice in concrete ways.
