Now that we have a bill, MoCs are asking whether labor unions support it. Unions help to elect MoCs by contributing to their campaigns and getting out the vote on election day.
With a rising carbon fee, there will be job losses in fossil fuel-related industries. New jobs created may have similar pay, but may not be located near the lost jobs nor utilize the same skills, and workers may need to start over at entry level wages. Unions want pay, retirements and benefits protected for their fossil fuel members who lose their jobs due to government climate policy.
We are a grasstops outreach team focused on labor unions. We meet with labor union locals and labor councils, as well as with their national offices, to learn about what they do, what they may be thinking or doing about climate change, and whether they can support the current fee and dividend bill.
The team co-leaders are Linda VerNooy, Peter Handler and Jon Clark. Please email any questions to email@example.com.
