CJNY Receives New York City Council Proclamation during Climate Week
On Tuesday, the New York City Council honored Climate Jobs New York with a proclamation to recognize the coalition's work to achieve good union jobs within the ever-expanding green economy. CJNY was honored at the event alongside environmental groups and was issued the proclamation by Council Speaker Adams and Councilmembers Sandy Nurse, Carmen De La Rosa, Amanda Farías, Alexa Avilés, and James Gennaro.
A large contingent of rank-and-file members from the coalition came out to receive the proclamation on behalf of CJNY and their unions. Three speakers from CJNY also told their stories to the crowd about the impact climate change has had on their workplaces and lives, and how they see their unions as heading the charge towards a greener economy.
