The Clean Economy Revolution Will Be Unionized
Join Center for American Progress founder John Podesta and AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler as they discuss what it takes to ensure that clean jobs are good jobs. The event will be livestreamed on July 7 at 3 p.m. ET.
The United States faces enormous opportunity to launch a clean energy-driven economic recovery that supports millions of good-paying union jobs, confronts environmental injustice and prevents the worst impacts of climate change.
States already have taken steps to prepare the workforce for the transition into a cleaner future while empowering workers and partnering with unions to improve labor standards. From tax incentives to apprenticeship programs to investing in green schools, state and local officials, environmental leaders, and industry have created a road map for much-needed federal action.
Clean energy jobs must be union jobs. Join us to learn how we can make that happen.
