Blue Light Report - March / April 2018

Brothers and Sisters,

Hopefully, by the time you receive this report the work this spring will have sprung. I fully expect that we will shadow our record numbers and possibly could shatter the record of 12 million manhours set back in 1968.

Could the work just dry up and disappear? If you spent your whole career in the pipeline industry, you’ve seen it go from wide open to dead still in a matter of months. It is important that you, as a member of Local 798, understand that almost every piece of fossil fuel infrastructure will be contested going forward into the future. Our opponents have developed new strategies to increase the financial risks of these pipeline projects. Blocking and stalling permits causes a viable concern for banks who finance the work. Bankers do not like risk, they like certainty. However, the strategy of delay is more than just economics. It is an opportunity for these opponents to not only raise “awareness,” but at the same time raise funds to oppose future projects.

An Energy Future Built on Excellence | Join Now

Pipeliners build the pipelines that give communities across the country access to critical energy production. The country has benefited greatly from the use of our domestic oil and natural gas. These domestic resources have contributed billions of dollars to the national economy and has moved the United States closer to energy independence. Yet, the Nation does not have the necessary pipeline infrastructure to connect its oil and gas production with consuming markets across the nation and beyond. Take action today and join the growing network of energy advocates that understand the need for new pipeline infrastructure.
