Unions Support Divestment to Protect California State Worker Pensions

Public employees deserve a secure pension, safe working conditions, and a livable place to retire. While fossil fuel investments are extremely volatile and risky, fossil fuel pollution drives climate chaos in California — including extreme heat, flooding, toxic air pollution, water contamination, and wildfires. Our pension funds actively investing in fossil fuels is undermining our ability to work and retire in peace and safety.

The California Fossil Fuel Divestment Coalition is building broad support across California. Union support includes California Faculty Association, AFSCME California, California Federation of Teachers, and California Nurses Association.
