The largest organization of labor unions in the U.S. slammed the Green New Deal on Friday for combatting climate change by threatening the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

The AFL-CIO sent a letter on Friday to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, the two Democratic lawmakers leading the Green New Deal push in Congress. The labor group demanded a larger role in crafting future solutions, slamming the current proposal as “not achievable or realistic.”

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the letter says.
