Climate Action

This page contains a series of articles and resources that we hope encourage action and education on the climate crisis.

Your union is already gearing up for further action in relation to education and climate change, with a list of 15 recommendations from the SSTUWA’s response to the Education and Health Standing Committee - Inquiry into the response of WA schools to climate change.

Education has an incredibly vital role to play in addressing climate change in Australia and globally.

Australian Unions campaign graphic saying: No worker or community left behind. Australia needs an energy transition authority

Support establishing a national Energy Transition Authority in Australia to ensure no workers or communities are left behind in the transition to clean energy.

Australia risks an unjust transition without effective planning, coordination, and federal leadership.

Countries like Germany and Spain have established dedicated national authorities to support energy workers and communities through the transition. It is time for Australia to do the same.  

Establishing a national Energy Transition Authority in 2023 will ensure a net-zero future where all Australians can work toward a clean energy future with secure, well-paying jobs.
