Just Transition for All

Oceania Unions
A 2018 paper which examines the ‘theory’ and practice of ‘just transition’ by first considering the competing interpretations and conceptual understandings of it and second, the challenges of realizing a ‘just transition’ in an Australian coal region where transition is occurring. The paper argues that achieving ‘just transition’ requires more than government provisions and interventions and that unions must perform an active part in the process through their relations with employers, workers, government, and community. It suggests the lack of clarity within the ‘just transition’ literature may be the concept’s lasting strength.
