...[D]riving progress on addressing climate change is what’s best for the economic health, jobs, and competitiveness of our companies and our country...  [W]e stand by our conviction that a commitment to the Paris Agreement requires a just transition of the workforce—one that respects labor rights and is achieved through dialogue with workers and their unions. Participation in the Paris Agreement enables us to plan for a just transition and create new decent, family-supporting jobs and economic opportunity... Staying in the Paris Agreement will strengthen our competitiveness in global markets, positioning the United States to lead the deployment of new technologies that support the transition, provide for our workers and communities, and create jobs and companies built to last... We urge the United States to join us in staying in.

[Signatories include AFL-CIO, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, and 71 others]
