Trying to Kill JobsOn Jun 13, 2016 Latest updates
Obsessed with supposed global warming, SEIU is supporting radical environmental legislation which would kill jobs and make electricity more costly and less reliable.
SEIU 32BJ, 1199 and the CWA are joining a labor-environmental coalition urging New York state lawmakers to pass the New York State Climate and Community Protection Act.
The coalition will be rallying in Albany Wednesday in support of the climate bill, which it describes as the strongest climate protection bill in the U.S.
Declaring that global warming is a working people’s issue, the coalition says this legislation “guarantees 100 percent clean, renewable energy, good jobs and justice for communities hardest hit” by climate change. The coalition says the climate bill would “create legally-enforceable emissions standards, invest in green infrastructure and good green jobs and set New York on the path towards 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.”
