Carbon Free and Healthy Schools NYC

The Climate Group

Hosted by Climate Jobs NY

Join the United Federation of Teachers, District Council 37, 32BJ SEIU, the New York City Building and Construction Trades Council, the New York City Central Labor Council, Climate Jobs NY and others for the virtual launch of the Carbon Free and Healthy Schools campaign.

This is a moment when we can go big-enlisting federal support and building on earlier work to put solar on some NYC schools-and implement energy-efficiency retrofits and solar power across NYC’s school buildings. Together, we can make NYC schools a model of green infrastructure, make schools healthier and safer for students and the school community, create good union jobs, and save schools millions in energy costs.

Speakers will include:

  • Gary Labarbera, President of the Building & Construction Trades Council of Greater New York and the New York State Building & Construction Trades Council
  • Vincent Alvarez, President of NYC CLC
  • Michael Mulgrew, President of the United Federation of Teachers Henry Garrido, Executive Director of District Council 37
  • Kyle Bragg, President of 32BJ SEIU
