Mark Serwotka: Trade Unions and the Environmental Movement are Natural Allies

The trade union movement and the environmental movement should be “together like hand in glove, they should be allies,” argues Mark Serwotka, the General Secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) – the trade union for British civil servants. We should watch out for those who try to divide us and try to get their way by getting us at each other’s throats: it makes life easier for them and worse for us. We should be absolutely, naturally allies. And that means starting to recognise that capitalism attacks workers who are members of trade unions, and it attacks the environment.
