Statement from Acting AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler on the bipartisan infrastructure deal:
The bipartisan infrastructure deal is a win for America’s workers who are hungry to rebuild our nation after decades of delay and decline. This is a testament to the leadership of President Biden and a hopeful sign that policies supported by large majorities of the American people can move through a closely-divided Senate. As this bill moves toward final passage, we need to make sure that strong labor standards are included so we can make good on the promise to create millions of good-paying union jobs. Finally, we urge senators to capitalize on this momentum by passing the rest of the widely popular Build Back Better agenda, including the American Families Plan and the PRO Act.
