TTD Statement on White House, Senate Infrastructure Deal

By Admin

Greg Regan, president of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), issues this statement in response to an infrastructure deal reached between the White House and a bipartisan group of Senators:

“Bold, federal investments in our nation’s infrastructure — the kind that will put millions of people to work rebuilding our country and economy — have long been a top priority for transportation workers and their unions. The announcement today that President Biden and a bipartisan group of Senators have reached an infrastructure deal looks like a significant step forward in meeting the long-neglected needs of our nation’s infrastructure and the working families who rely on it.

“While much work remains to finalize this agreement, TTD looks forward to working with the Biden administration and Congress to ensure that every dollar spent under this agreed upon framework is paired with the strongest labor protections possible that guarantee good jobs and strong worker protections for the Americans who design, build, operate, and maintain our infrastructure.”
