Happy Earth Day from the SEIU 721 Environmental Justice Caucus!

Happy Earth Day from the SEIU 721 Environmental Justice Caucus!

Sign the petition and tell congress to maintain pollution standards established by the Inflation Reduction Act.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is making good on its promise to do everything it can to address both the climate crisis and health inequities by issuing new rules to reduce soot, smog, and other sources of airborne pollution that plague low-income communities.

Corporate polluters are attacking these new rules in the courts. Fossil fuel executives want to derail the climate and clean energy plan and kill clean energy jobs established by the Inflation Reduction Act.

SEIU members need to ensure we defend these climate wins by signing this petition–calling on Congress to protect the recent progress made on air pollution and clean energy.

Heat, made worse by climate change, is projected to kill and sicken more people than all other climate impacts combined. Rules to protect workers need to be revised, forcing Phoenix airport workers to labor in temps often above 110 F. Their advocacy led to a new heat ordinance passed by the city, guaranteeing workers access to rest, shade, water, and air conditioning.

Join with the airport workers at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix who are fighting for a union and won protection from killer heat on the job!. Join us this Earth Day to demand protection from deadly climate impacts. Sign the petition now!
