It's going down at . . . "A strike is an economic stoppage. A strike does not plead. It does not demand. It simply does. A global climate strike stops the economic and political systems responsible for the climate crisis."

Make your climate strike resolution specific to your union or organization. This means that you should write your resolution in the style your union/organization usually uses. You should include whereas statements that are likely motivate your membership. And you should keep it simple and direct.


Whereas, growing waves of climate strikes have united millions of people across the Earth;

Whereas, the members of [NAME OF UNION/ORGANIZATION] honor our tradition of collective action and global solidarity;

Whereas, the global climate crisis threatens first and harms most working people, poor people, and those who work and live closest to the land and sea;  

Whereas, this crisis is a generational crisis which will harm the youngest the longest;

Whereas, the last three decades of climate neglect have shown that we cannot rely on major corporations or politicians to justly resolve the climate crisis;

Whereas, the global economic and political system that created the climate crisis cannot be relied on to solve the climate crisis;

Whereas, the greatest power of the people to transform the global economy is the power to withhold and redirect our labor - the power to strike; 

Whereas, we know that if the climate strikes are to prove effective, we must build strike capacity and coordination among participating unions and organizations;

Therefore, be it resolved that [NAME OF UNION/ORGANIZATION] will participate in future climate strikes; that we will do so in the ways most appropriate to our membership and economic position; and that we will join with other participating unions and organizations in setting the agenda for future climate strike waves.
