Laborers Mobilize for Sandpiper Pipeline Project

Laborers District Council of MN & ND
Enbridge plans to build a 600-mile pipeline that would connect North Dakota’s Bakken oil fields to Enbridge terminals in Clearbrook and Superior, Wisconsin. The proposed Sandpiper pipeline could put hundreds of union LIUNA members to work, keep fuel prices down, and prevent deadly rail accidents. (Click here to read more about the Sandpiper Project.)
But none of that will happen without your help. Pipeline opponents are already lobbying the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to kill the project. We need to let the Commission know that hard-working Minnesotans support building the Sandpiper pipeline.
- Good construction jobs
- Lower fuel prices
- A safer alternative to rail
- More domestic energy production
The Commission will hold public hearings on Sandpiper next week (Jan. 5-9) to find out what Minnesotans think about the project. Pipeline opponents will be out in force, but so will we.
Join your LIUNA brothers and sisters and stand for Sandpiper.
