Union Labor Would Bring Strongest Workforce to Rebuild Key Bridge
Posted On: Apr 16, 2024
Apr. 16, 2024 | COMMENTARY | When President Joe Biden came to Baltimore to survey the collapsed Francis Scott Key Bridge, he made a promise all of Baltimore and the region desperately needed to hear. “We’re going to move heaven and earth to rebuild this bridge as rapidly as humanly possible. And we’re going to do so with union labor and American steel,” Biden said, adding that he had a “simple reason: They’re the best workers in the world, and that’s not hyperbole.” No, it’s not hyperbole. It’s fact. Union labor, along with our signatory contractors, time and again have led miraculous rebuilds after accidents and natural disasters. Our skill, training and ability to quickly mobilize are vital in restoring infrastructure and communities. We saw it last year with the I-95 bridge in Philadelphia and in the aftermath of that fateful day, Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City. And we need to see it again in Baltimore… The Baltimore Banner  PHOTO: FLICKR
