NEW YORK — Today, workers at the Tesla plant in south Buffalo, New York began the push to unionize. May Boeve, 350.org Executive Director offered the following statement in support:

“350.org fully supports the union organizing of Tesla workers in Buffalo, New York. A just transition to 100% renewable energy means prioritizing the health, safety and security of all workers. As we work to tackle the climate crisis and build a fossil free world, good, union jobs must be central to a Green New Deal. Unions have historically been at the forefront of fighting for progressive change. Now, it’s the responsibility of all of us striving toward climate justice to stand in solidarity with labor organizers.”
