Environmental and climate change issues affect the way the CWU works and affects both the working and domestic lives of our members.
At CWU we do a combination of campaign and practical work to address these issues.

CWU is represented on the TUC's Trade Union Sustainable Development Advisory Committee, a joint government-TUC body.
