What, no job losses from carbon pricing?

I heard a Union rep saying the Unions would accept a carbon tax only if “no job losses” resulted.  How many whale-oil shops, charcoal burners, farriers and blacksmiths are there?  Is there a politician brave enough to respond with “Carbon pricing is to speed up adoption of  changes in technology.  Changed tech = new jobs here, job losses there.  Plan for the inevitable .”?
