Green Workers Alliance

We bring together workers in a wide range of green jobs to advocate for policies that both fight climate change and increase the number of good, clean jobs.  We are currently focused on organizing solar and wind workers on utility-scale projects. 

There are more than  400,000 jobs in the clean energy sector alone, more than in the entire fossil fuel industry. But until now, there's not been a unified voice for green workers.

All green workers--and anyone who wants to work in this sector--are welcome to join. We will need the combined forces of those who do the work now and those who want good, green jobs to win the kind of dramatic changes we need.
