U.K. Unions and Local Governments can Contribute to Job Growth

At a Trades Union Congress conference in the U.K. in January, The New Green Team was released. Researched and written by the Association for Public Services Excellence (APSE) for UNISON, the report was based on extensive interviews with local authorities. The research found “there is potential for huge expansion in new jobs and skills include Green Finance, Green Law, Architecture, Research and Development, Engineering, Assembly Technicians, Installation Technicians, Carpentry, Plumbing and Repair and Maintenance jobs”. The document is available at: http://www.apse.org.uk/page-flips/2011/the-new-green-team/index.html.
