Greening the Workplace through Collective Bargaining

The Green Collective Agreements Database provides examples of contract language achieved by unions who are fighting climate change by bringing environmental issues into their collective bargaining priorities.  These examples come from publicly-available collective agreements, mainly in Canada, but also including Australia, the U.K., and international model agreements.  Agreements from the U.S. will be added in 2016.

Use the “View All” button to browse all agreements, or use the “Subject” search to find contract language related to workplace environmental committees, recycling and conservation, commuting, green procurement, member training and education, and general statements of social and environmental responsibility, and others.  The green clauses are reproduced here; click on the URL link provided to go to the full, original agreement.
