Thousands of workers and major unions are supporting the youth-led student climate strikes September 20-27. Here’s how workers and unions can join them:

  • Join actions in your area: US Action MapGlobal Action Map
  • Register your action (and encourage others in your community to register) on the map
  • Take an inter-generational pic with youth
  • Sign on as a partner organization with Strike with US (part of how we can raise labor’s visibility is to have as many worker organizations signing on!)
  • Please share your climate strike action plans with LNS by emailing lburke@labor4sustainability.org
  • Send an email with this information to your own list and lists from your union, worker center or labor council.
