Labor is Leading: Building the Climate Jobs Movement Now!

By Staff - Climate Jobs National Resource Center (CJNRC), September 21, 2021

Climate Jobs National Resource Center is the leading national labor-led organization in the climate movement. Our story began in 2017 with the launch of Climate Jobs New York (CJNY), a coalition of unions that joined together to fight climate change and income inequality. CJNY won bold climate action to create good-paying union jobs, trained union members on the science of climate change, and significant investments in the state’s offshore wind infrastructure.

We provide strategic and technical support to labor-led climate jobs coalitions in a growing number of states. We work in close collaboration with the coalitions to support in developing climate action plans, organizing union members around the plan, and developing a strategic campaign to win its implementation.

Currently, we support labor-led, state-level climate jobs coalitions in six states: Connecticut, New York, Maine, Texas, Rhode Island, and Illinois.
