Uniting movements for green jobs and climate justice

Uniting movements for green jobs and climate justice r1 ... r71 | Add us to your address book

Dear Friend,

We’re at a turning point for federal climate politics. After years of pressure from you and countless others in the movement, the federal government is expected to finally introduce just transition (aka Sustainable Jobs) legislation in the coming months.

However, all indications are pointing to legislation being frustratingly weak. We need to escalate pressure on the government to get it to commit to passing the strong just transition legislation we need.

Join us for two livestreamed events at the upcoming Canadian Labour Congress convention on how we can win a just transition by building solidarity across movements. Tune in at canadians.org/JustTransition.

Often the labour and environmental movements are framed as being in opposition. Governments and CEOs like that. But you and I know, based on countless experiences, that our movements are actually well-aligned. We're on the same side. And we can – and must – build a common front to work together across movements to win a just transition. With a just transition, workers, communities, and the planet we live on will win.

The Council of Canadians, Blue Green Canada, and our allies believe we can create and keep good jobs across the country, protect workers and the environment. We are proud to invite you to the following events:

Forward together for jobs, justice, and climate
Monday May 8th, 1-2 p.m. ET
Hear stories of solidarity – and how we can build it to address the crises we’re facing – from your friendly neighbourhood labour and environmental organizers.

Movements vs. money: Building a common front to take on the climate profiteers
Thursday, May 11th, 5:30-6 p.m. ET
The climate crisis is changing the way we live and work, but who caused the crisis and who’s paying for it? How can we ensure the government funds a truly just transition that addresses the needs of workers and communities instead of lining the pockets of wealthy CEOs? Tune in for livestream of these events at canadians.org/JustTransition. Dylan Penner With hope and resolve,
