Did you know that on Sept. 20, 2019, more labor participated in a climate mobilization than ever before? The time to fight for immediate and bold climate action is now. But the needed economic transition will not take place without strong guarantees for worker rights and good jobs for all.

This year, Earth Day promises to be even bigger. On the 50th anniversary, youth are calling for a massive mobilization to fight for transformative action on climate change. Please join us in standing with them. Let’s stand with the youth and the same time fight for the interests of all of us, the workers, in ensuring protections in the shift to a climate-safe economy.

Join LNS on Wednesday, March 4 for our First Earth Day Labor Table.



First Earth Day Labor Table:
“National Union Plans”


Wednesday, March 4

The first labor table will kick off with Earth Day plans from:

The labor tables are designed to support local labor engagement campaigns and coordinate national labor engagement for this historic climate mobilization.
