TRADE UNIONS FOR ENERGY DEMOCRACY
Energy Democracy Initiative - 2013

In May 2013, Trade Unions for Energy Democracy was launched. This initiative represents a new labor movement approach to climate change and energy poverty. A sustainable and just energy transition is necessary. To bring this about unions and their allies must engage in sustained struggle for democratic, public control of energy resources.

In this video, trade unionists, scholars and activists–including RLS-NYC co-director Albert Scharenberg–discuss the looming environmental disaster and the stake that working people and their unions have in solving this crisis.

The Energy Democracy Initiative is the outcome of a a global trade union round-table on “Energy Emergency, Energy Transition” RLS–NYC and Cornell’s Global Labor Institute convened in October 2012. At this meeting, union representatives from eighteen countries and five global union federations came together to address the energy emergency facing the planet and the transition that will be necessary to avoid catastrophic climate change.
