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.

    Every great empire in the history of the world has had one thing in common, an abundant energy supply. First it was manpower, then horsepower and now the energy of today is oil and natural gas. The oil and gas being produced and transported within America gives us the real energy independence we have not experienced in over six decades. The American dream and our livelihood is worth fighting for. Let’s all make a commitment to jump in and do our part.
