LABOR & CLIMATE NEWS
Take pictures with signs about labor’s support. In advance of September 20 or during the week of action, snap a photo with a younger person, a family member such as a child, grandchild, etc., with a sign that reads: “Workers support the climate strikes,” or “Labor supports the climate strikes,” or “Unions support the climate strike,” and post it to social media.
In the last few months, as we’ve experienced the hottest ever recorded July globally and extreme floods in the Midwest, it’s undeniable that climate crisis is already impacting many of us, our communities, and our workplaces.

A poll by YouGov Blue on behalf of Data for Progress shows brought support for the Green New Deal from union members.
The Blue-Green Alliance, which unites large labor and environmental organizations, recently released the statement “Solidarity for Climate Action.”
