The TWU Supports House Moving Forward Infrastructure Framework
The Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) supports the Moving Forward Framework for infrastructure investment introduced today by House leaders today.
The plan will increase infrastructure investment to $760 billion over five years, prioritizing public transit funding, and commits those dollars to advance middle class jobs.
“Our transit infrastructure is in dire need of investment. This plan would commit billions more dollars each year to desperately needed improvements in our public transit systems. The Transport Workers Union of America fully supports this framework and will work closely with Congress to see this translated into law as soon as possible,” said International President John Samuelsen.
The Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO, represents more than 150,000 workers in the airline, railroad, transit, universities, utilities and services sectors
