“Building a clean economy in our nation is an opportunity to make sure the economy works for everyone.

“We applaud and support the workers at the Tesla facility seeking to make sure their voices are heard in their workplace and the announcement by USW and IBEW. Workers in the clean economy deserve to have fair wages and benefits and safe and healthy jobs and unions are vital to making sure workers have the bargaining power to achieve that.”
