Affiliate your Trade Union

By affiliating to War on Want with a regular donation, your union can have a real say in our future and the fight against global poverty.

War on Want has long understood that decent work and a living wage are not only a basic right but also a key route out of poverty. However, in many of the world's poorest communities, workers face exploitation, discrimination and have little hope of a better life. Your union can help change this.

By affiliating to War on Want, your union will be joining an organisation which fights for workers' rights in partnership with trade unions and associations of working people across the world. As an affiliate organisation you can vote at our AGM and have a real say in our future.

Open Letter: Energy Charter Treaty

9 December 2019 - 4:00pm

War on Want has joined with over 270 other civil society organisations to call out dangers which the Energy Charter Treaty [ECT] poses to effective action on climate change.

The ECT is incompatible with the Paris Climate Agreement, Just Transition policies, and the expected European Green Deal, because it is used by large fossil and nuclear energy companies to lock-in their investments and challenge national government decisions to phase out dirty energy. The ECT contains measures to protect energy investments even where they contradict climate goals. And it has an Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism that allows foreign investors in the energy sector to directly sue governments outside of existing courts, in secretive international tribunals, claiming up to billions in compensation if their (future) profits are affected. 

You can read the full open letter below.
