AFL-CIO Pres. Trumka On Canceling Keystone XL Pipeline: "I Wish He Had Paired That More Carefully" With Creating Jobs

|

Speaking to Jonathan Swan on "Axios on HBO," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said he was disappointed to see President Biden cancel the Keystone XL pipeline, and thousands of union construction jobs, "on the first day."

"I wish he hadn't done that on the first day," Trumka said. "It did and will cost us jobs... I wish he had paired that more carefully with the thing he did second where he is talking about creating jobs."


Trumka said he doesn’t know if Biden will cancel other pipelines, but if he does, "he’ll pair it with job creation that will be greater than the number of jobs lost."
