Climate Jobs NY Update #1: Climate Action Council Hearing in the Bronx & Brookhaven

Organized labor did what it does best this week, standing shoulder to shoulder from the Bronx to Brookhaven during the State's Climate Action Council meetings this week. We made it clear we need a smooth and just transition to clean energy that creates good family-sustaining union jobs across New York; strong labor standards across zero-carbon technologies -- offshore wind, solar battery storage, EV, green hydrogen and other emerging technologies; and our green energy infrastructure must be resilient and reliable. We had over 400 union members join in Brookhaven. See the video on our Instagram page!
