FNV: Ensuring a Just Transition for workers in the fossil energy sector

We all want to stop polluting the air and end climate change. But what will happen to the people working in these sectors and to their families? No worker needs to be left behind. That is why unions are advocating Just Transition processes that make sure shifting over to clean energy production is done along with efficient social policy measures for the affected workers and their families. In the Netherlands, the largest trade union, FNV, has made sure fossil energy sector workers are not left behind as the country is transitioning into climate sustainable energy production.
