green ban


green ban
A trade union ban on demolition or construction projects on sites deemed to be of historical, cultural or environmental significance. The term arose by analogy with 'black ban', with the colour green being associated with the environmental lobby in West Germany in the early 1970s. Although green ban is used elsewhere, the term was recorded first in Australia in 1973.
