Surveys of our members show concern about climate change ranks in the top four issues, alongside protecting your rights at work, health and education, and the economy.
We are passionate about this issue too and take the matter up with policy makers in Government and industry.
Recognising how important this is to our members, the Australian Services Union Victorian Private Sector Branch has developed a Clean & Green Guide to assist our Members and Delegates to take proactive and practical steps in their workplace to tackle climate change and promote sustainability.
Our Guide includes:
- Tried and true office best practices to reduce paper consumption, conserve energy, and improve recycling and waste management;
- Tips on how to develop, through consultation, a workplace environmental policy and committee;
- Purchasing Power – Australian Services Union members are uniquely placed to positively influence their employers’ purchasing habits and policies;
- Bargaining for sustainability.
The emphasis is on simple and practical change that every member of the union can make to contribute towards a more sustainable office environment.
