Union Work is Driving Energy Connectivity in Pennsylvania

Energy infrastructure projects across Pennsylvania support good-paying jobs and connect people and businesses to energy they need.

According to Trib Live, “thanks to sustained, meaningful partnership between our building trade unions and the natural gas industry, Pennsylvania has established itself as the nation’s second-largest natural-gas-producing state. As we increasingly deliver clean-burning, American natural gas to our nation and the world, the industry is improving lives across the commonwealth by creating more good-paying, family-sustaining jobs, especially for local union workers, while lowering energy costs for consumers and cleaning our air.”

A member of Steamfitters Local 420 further detailed that, pipeline construction projects have “created two million man hours of work paying $160 million in wages and benefits…It has given us an economic boost that was needed and well deserved.”
