Unions Have the Potential and the Responsibility to Advance a “Just Transition”

>> Read interview published by Truthout

In an interview with C.J. Polychroniou, Norman Rogers, second vice president of United Steelworkers (USW) Local 675, shares his insights on the principles and importance of providing a just transition for fossil fuel workers as we transition to a green economy. He advances that "a just path to a decarbonized future is absolutely critical to an ecologically sustainable economy. The costs of achieving a green economy should not be borne by those who have suffered and been excluded by the injustices associated with industrialization."
