Building Trades Unions Applaud AFL-CIO Exec Council Resolution in Support of Pipeline Projects Like Keystone XL

"America's Building Trades Unions are pleased that the AFL-CIO Executive Council today approved a resolution in support of a comprehensive energy policy that includes the expansion of our nation's pipeline infrastructure, including the Keystone XL pipeline.  The construction of this project represents an immediate opportunity for 20,000 union members to get back to work and provide for their families.  The U.S. construction industry has been mired in a depression for over 4 years now, and shovel-ready projects like Keystone XL and other energy infrastructure projects are badly needed.  Today was a victory for moving this important project forward and we applaud the Federation for standing up for jobs"
