More from the opening plenary at the Good Jobs, Green Jobs conference: Communications Workers of America (CWA) President Larry Cohen:
Because of the Blue Green Alliance, CWA feels stronger, more hopeful, more committed. Our leaders who are here come from IUE-CWA and I heard remarkable stories yesterday of recreating jobs across the country, bringing hope to manufacturing workers as people are being hired back and creating new green products.
If you want to learn more about CWA workers hired back to help build the clean energy economy, you can see their stories (and more) at our CleanEnergyStories website.
We've got a bunch of interviews with real workers, including Wes Anderson (CWA-IUE), who makes batteries for hybrid cars at the Cobasys plant in Springboro, Ohio.
