Wednesday, August 4, 2021

With the bipartisan infrastructure bill – the main component of President Biden’s plans to Build Back Better – on the floor of the Senate this week, the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters’ (UA) General President Mark McManus hailed the legislation as an historic, job-creating bill that will put UA members to work rebuilding our nation’s crumbling infrastructure:

“The bipartisan infrastructure bill reminds us that Washington can still get bold things done when the livelihoods of working families are on the line. This bill will put the brothers and sisters of the United Association to work replacing lead pipes, modernizing our energy infrastructure, and improving our access to safe and clean water in communities across the United States,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “This legislation is an important investment in working families like ours, and we look forward to continuing our work with the Biden-Harris Administration to replace all of our nation’s lead pipes, provide clean and safe water, deliver affordable and reliable energy, and to build the critical infrastructure that powers our nation.”
