Unions from 12 Countries Call for a Global Moratorium on Fracking

Now, another friend, Liz Arnold, alerted me of an international group, Unions for Energy Democracy, whose recent news bulletin stated “Thirty trade union bodies representing tens of millions of workers have issued a statement calling for a global uafmoratorium on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for shale gas, coal seam gas, and shale oil.” It appears to be led by Unions Against Fracking, a sub-group.

Heartening that it isn’t just the near residents and environmentalists against fracking, that it’s also the tradespeople who will supposedly have jobs.

If you represent a union in the Philadelphia area, we’d love to have you as an ally as we build the momentum for a Philadelphia powered by clean energy. Please contact me.
