'We Must Be Bolder Than Ever': Labor Federation Representing 30 Million Workers Calls on All Unions to Join Global Climate Strike

To combat the common and false perception of the labor movement as an opponent of the fight for climate justice rather than an enthusiastic and necessary ally, a labor federation representing over 30 million workers from 152 countries is calling on unions around the world to join—or do everything they can to support—the millions of people set to take to the streets on Sept. 20 for the youth-led global climate strikes. "Public Services International (PSI)—the global union federation of workers in public services—is calling on our affiliates and unions across the world to do all in our power to support the week of action on climate..Pavanelli said the Sept. 20 strikes, and the broader push for transformative climate action, represent a historic chance to revitalize the labor movement and build the kind of broad coalition capable of defeating the powerful corporate forces standing in the way of necessary change...Major unions like the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)—which represents nearly two million workers in the U.S. and Canada—and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) have also backed the youth-led climate strikes, which will kick off a week of action coinciding with the United Nations Summit on Climate Change on Sept. 23rd in New York.
