NABTU APPLAUDS HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE MOVING FORWARD ACT
July 1, 2020
Today, North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) President Sean McGarvey issued the following statement commending the passage of H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act:
“For years, NABTU, its affiliated unions and its members have urged both Congress and the Administration to pass a broad-scoped, robustly funded infrastructure package with strong labor standards to ensure that as we rebuild American infrastructure, we rebuild American communities by providing job and training opportunities to workers and their families. The Moving Forward Act meets these goals aggressively.
“NABTU applauds Speaker Pelosi for moving forward this long-awaited, and desperately-needed infrastructure agenda. We commend the commitment to local prevailing wage rates and those who demonstrated that infrastructure is not a partisan issue or political issue, but an American issue with broad support, and a policy we should advance to strengthen us globally.
