9. Joint Environment and Climate Change Agreement

Joint Environment and Climate Change Agreement (JECCA) with Stockport UNISON

On 30 October 2013, UNISON wrote to us seeking agreement to a Joint Environment and Climate Change Agreement (JECCA) (PDF 276kb).

The letter recognised our track record in playing a leadership role on these issues and stated a desire to strengthen Stockport UNISON’s engagement. This was driven by a heightened interest within the Stockport UNISON branch and a wider recognition in the trade union movement of the necessity of a ‘just transition to a low carbon economy’.

The JECCA was approved by the council’s Executive on 22 April 2014.
