Biden Administration Advances Good Green Jobs


Washington, D.C. (June 18, 2024) – Brent Booker, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:


LIUNA commends the Biden Administration and the U.S. Department of the Treasury on today’s Internal Revenue Service final rule for clean energy tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).


This rule will help fulfill the promise of President Biden and his Administration to ensure that green jobs become good union jobs. The final rule requires that contractors and industry partners may only qualify for the 30% tax credit on solar and wind projects if workers building the projects receive prevailing wages and at least 15% of work hours are completed by registered apprentices. Furthermore, the Administration recognizes that project labor agreements deliver far-ranging benefits to developers and are a best practice strategy for compliance under the IRA.


LIUNA looks forward to working with the Administration on the implementation of this rule, which promises good jobs for LIUNA members and helps advance our nation’s goal towards a more sustainable future.




The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build the United States and Canada.
