Supreme Court Rules for Atlantic Coast Pipeline

Another Obstacle Removed for Pipeline Workers

 

Washington, D.C. (June 15, 2020) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:


The Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision overturning a lower court’s ruling against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline is good news for the thousands of LIUNA and building trades men and women who have been waiting for the crucial pipeline project to move forward. In addition to creating thousands of good, family-supporting jobs, construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline will help bring affordable energy and address chronic gas shortages along its 600-mile route, stretching from West Virginia to North Carolina.
