Through its research and analysis, IPLCE equips labor movement, climate justice, community leaders and activists with relevant and up-to-date facts and arguments they can use to inform and mobilize their peers and constituencies.
TUED’s series of “Working Papers” expands and clarifies the network’s collective understanding of the scientific, economic, ecological, policy and political realities, and the strategic opportunities available to unions to advance the interests of working people and communities (this is because the subject is “series” which takes the singular form).
