Initial opposition by labor to a “Green New Deal" is slowly turning to support.

Initial reluctance to embrace a cleaner industrial strategy by unions and their membership centered on pay discrepancies, according to the Harvard Political Review.

Since early 2019, when a version of the “Green New Deal” reached Congress, perspectives and opinions have shifted, the journal reported, with, for instance, the United Auto Workers, coming out in support of a Biden administration plan rooted in a green industrial strategy.

“The president-elect has made it clear that he wants the jobs created by strategic federal investment to be high-quality union jobs,” the Review quoted Jason Walsh of BlueGreen Alliance.
