IBEW 569 at Earth Fair 2019
Thank you to all of our members that joined us at Earth Fair 2019 and helped educate families on the importance of union, good jobs in a Green New Deal!
A worsening climate crisis and rising inequality threaten the health and well-being of millions, especially communities of color, low-income and vulnerable populations.
Nationally, progressive leaders have called for a Green New Deal to address climate change and achieve social and environmental justice.
Among other things, this national proposal calls for creating high-quality union jobs and strengthening and protecting the right of all workers to organize, unionize and collectively bargain free of coercion, intimidation and harassment.
Any Green New Deal needs to include strong labor provisions so we can achieve an equitable, sustainable program that creates good career pathways and reflects the values of the communities it serves.
