TCU President Bob Scardelletti addressed the delegates of the ITF Climate Change Congress in Mexico City. President Scardelletti emphasized the delicate balance between climate concerns and the needs of the union transportation worker.
“A trade union’s primary responsibility is to represent and protect its membership. The struggle to protect existing jobs and expand employment opportunities is the cornerstone of trade union principles,” said Scardelletti. “We must be the champion of protecting existing jobs in transportation and growing new jobs in mass transit and other clean transportation modes. Our overriding priority must be to protect and enhance the workers we already represent.”
