Fire Drill Fridays: Why Workers and Environmentalists Are Stronger Together | Greenpeace USA

“Hot Labor Summer” of 2023 proved why it’s important for environmentalists to show up in solidarity with workers fighting for dignity and justice. With examples like Assembly Bill 421 to curb corporate power in California politics and the united auto workers on strike nationwide for a fair contract and a just transition as we make the shift to EVs, it’s clear that when labor and climate movements partner up — they build power and win victories, together. Jane Fonda welcomes key labor leaders to discuss fights for workers and how we can build a bigger, stronger, collective movement towards the future we all deserve.
