Trade union solidarity with student climate strikes

23 May 2019

Trade union members are organising to show their solidarity with the children and young people striking for climate action on 24 May.

The global movement of school climate strikes and the actions of Extinction Rebellion have shifted the debate on climate change, raising the prominence of the issues involved and encouraging more people to get involved.

Many across the trade union movement have been inspired by the action taken in the last few months by young people determined to defend their future.  The rally in Parliament Square tomorrow (24 May) hosted by the Campaign Against Climate Change, encourages trade unionists to stand in solidarity and add their voices to the call for climate action.


PCS national vice president Zita Holbourne will be speaking at the rally in London which will take place in Parliament Square, London from 11:00-13:00.  Meet from 11am at the Churchill statue, at the corner nearest Westminster tube.
