This factsheet outlines the work of JMA's Illinois team.
Illinois is poised to pass comprehensive energy legislation in the upcoming 2021 session. Our Illinois team is organizing with environmental and labor coalitions to propose worker-centered policies that would ensure an equitable transition to 100% clean energy and transition the state's public vehicle fleets.
Chicago is transitioning to 100 percent clean, renewable energy by 2030 -- to get there, the city has also planned to create good jobs.
CTA will be the second transit agency nationally and the largest agency to apply our signature good jobs policy, the USEP, to its major procurements.
Our community-labor coalition is developing a jobs pipeline to train Chicagoans facing barriers to employment for jobs at CRRC, a railcar manufacturer in Chicago.
For the first time in 50 years, Chicago is manufacturing railcars. Our CBA with manufacturer CRRC will create good jobs for south side residents facing barriers to employment.
