Green Collective Agreements

Greening the Workplace through Collective Bargaining: Greening clauses in Collective Agreements 

The Work in a Warming World research project  has compiled a collection of “greening” clauses from Canadian collective agreements that are publicly-available. W3 is sharing this information on our website to help unions who want to fight climate change by bringing environmental issues into their collective bargaining priorities.

Follow the link provided,, to search or browse our collection of clauses relating to:  workplace environmental committees, whistleblower protection for environmental issues, recycling, commuting, green procurement, energy conservation, and more.

We will be adding to this collection with new clauses, as more and more unions bargain for these issues. Please send your agreement, or the green clauses  you are willing to share to
