Global Climate Strike

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.

[NAME OF UNION/ORGANIZATION] CLIMATE STRIKE RESOLUTION

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.
