Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard L. Trumka On Apollo Alliance Clean Transportation Manufacturing Action Plan
WASHINGTON - October 20 - Our economy needs to be rebuilt, and working Americans need jobs – both of which can be accomplished by modernizing and shoring up our nation's roads, bridges, mass transportation and advanced vehicles. The AFL-CIO applauds the Apollo Alliance Clean Transportation Manufacturing Action Plan (TMAP). TMAP will transform the legacy of our past into a practical vision and plan for the 21st century. Their plan will foster innovation and new technology while creating good jobs and ensuring that our manufacturing sector is competitive in a dynamic global economy.
The Apollo Alliance drew upon the expertise of unions, industry, transportation and policy makers to identify a forward thinking bipartisan national strategy to rebuild America. We applaud President Obama's infrastructure proposals and urge Congress and the Obama Administration to use the TMAP blueprint and get America back to work.
