Unions Add Voice In Support Of California Thermal Coal Divestment

CALIFORNIA - Two of the largest unions in California, SEIU Local 1000 and the California Faculty Association (CFA), have come out in support of S.B. 185 just one week after the bill passed through the State Senate. The bill calls for the two largest pension funds in the U.S., CalSTRS and CalPERS, to divest from thermal coal.

SEIU Local 1000, representing over 95,000 working men and women serving the State of California, supports the passage of SB 185 Public Retirement Systems: Public Divestiture of Thermal Coal Companies Act.
