Why workers?

The Workers' Climate Plan & The Federal Climate Consultations

Over the summer of 2016, The Government of Canada led a consultation process to get the input of Canadians before unveiling their National Climate Strategy, a result of signing the Paris Agreement to limit increasing global temperatures and the impacts of climate change.

Iron & Earth developed a plan to support industrial energy sector workers across the country in participating in this process, voicing support for a climate change strategy that works for workers, families, communities, the economy, and the environment.

Our members made their voices -- the voices of concerned oil, gas and coal workers -- heard at town hall meetings across the country and contributed to the development of the Workers Climate Plan Report, a planning document to prepare Canada's skilled trades workforce for jobs in renewable energy.
