Marching for a Healthy Planet and Good jobs

TDU members and other Teamsters joined hundreds of thousands in a massive march against Climate Change in New York City. A labor contingent of union members led the march under the slogan, “A Healthy Planet and good jobs.”

The media reported a turnout of 310,000.  March organizers say it was actually over 400,000. Either way, it was quite a crowd.

For too long, it’s been jobs vs. the environment. But on Sunday, we were all in it together.
