ASU members organising for climate action

Date: 01/03/2023

From extreme weather to climate disasters, changing work and cost-shifting by employers, workers are already experiencing the impacts of climate change.

All workers are facing a future with increasing levels of risk due to climate change, both inside and outside the workplace. But by acting collectively, we can win a safer and fairer future.

Climate action network

As an ASU member, you can get involved with our climate action network (CAN) and be skilled up for action with our extreme weather at work training.

The climate action network is your place to meet and organise with ASU members across Victoria and Tasmania. The CAN supports you to act in your workplace and links you with ASU members across our diverse industries to run collective campaigns, and share knowledge and skills.

The CAN meets quarterly online via Zoom. Register here.

Monday 15 May, 6.30 to 7.30pm
