The UK oil industry, and the politicians who back it, like using North Sea jobs as an argument against climate action.
Workers’ voices on job security in the energy sector are sidelined.
We urgently need a worker-led energy transition narrative. In 2020, 80% of UK offshore oil and gas workers considered
leaving the industry. Yet 91% have not even heard of “just transition”.
Building on a groundbreaking survey reaching 5% of the workforce, our project works directly with oil workers and their
trade unions to develop, communicate, and win a worker-led energy transition vision.
