The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a monumental political and legislative accomplishment. This is a $1.2 trillion investment in our infrastructure after decades of decline, and America’s workers are ready to rebuild our country.
This is a tremendous victory for working people in America:
- $110 billion to rebuild 173,000 miles of roads and 45,000 bridges.
- $65 billion to expand broadband internet access, particularly in rural areas.
- $55 billion to make sure Americans have access to safe and clean water, including $15 billion to replace lead pipes.
There’s even more in the bill, and all of this investment will create good union jobs. And that is worth celebrating.
Working people didn’t vote for a return to normal; we voted for a better future. And we’re making progress.
Brothers and Sisters,
In light of the growing concern for the health and safety
of our employees due to the
Covid-19 Pandemic, we have decided to restrict
the entry of non-employees to our offices unless the
person is fully vaccinated and a mask must be worn at all times.
The Union Office and Fund Office will be open
Monday thru Friday from
7:00am to 3:30pm
Lunch will be 12:30pm to 1:00pm
We are asking members to make any deliveries and drop-offs in our drop-box at the main entrance. Our phone lines also remain open for any questions or concerns
