Labor Network for Sustainability
Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2016
Purpose: Labor Network for Sustainability is dedicated to engaging trade unions, workers and their allies to support economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
From our perspective, efforts to engage unions on environmental issues too often resemble a series of tactics in search of a strategy. The Labor Network For Sustainability aims to provide a strategic, self-interest based framework for educating unions about climate change and sustainability. At the same time, the environmental movement has too often remained tone-deaf to the concerns and interests of working people. To address this shortcoming, LNFS works to educate environmental organizations about the concerns, interests, and culture of organized labor.
LNFS believes that those who want to save our planet from climate destruction urgently need a strategy engaging the trade union movement and to maximize labor's positive role.
