Washington, D.C. – November 19, 2021 – Today, North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) President Sean McGarvey issued the following statement:
“North America’s Building Trades Unions commend the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Build Back Better Act. This historic investment will take unprecedented steps forward by creating middle class jobs in the renewable energy sector, increasing labor protections and penalties for low road contractors and offering working families more access to pre-apprenticeship programs, affordable childcare, early childhood education programs and elder care.
“We applaud Speaker Pelosi as well as the Democratic moderate and progressive lawmakers who helped usher it through the House. We look forward to working with them and the U.S. Senate to deliver this legislation to President Biden’s desk for his signature before the end of the year.”
