Inflation Reduction Act Will Create Good-Paying Union Jobs While Reaching Energy Goals

Sunday, August 7, 2022

United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) General President Mark McManus praised the Inflation Reduction Act following its passage in the Senate this afternoon as a historic piece of legislation that create family-sustaining jobs and help us reach our ambitious energy and climate goals:

“With strong labor provisions and tax credits for an all-of-the-above energy approach included, the Inflation Reduction Act will ensure that our energy future is built with union labor – and that the jobs created by this bill are kind of family-sustaining jobs that give more Americans a fair shot at success,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “Today’s vote demonstrated that Congress can come together to deliver for the American people. This bill will not only boost working families everywhere, but it will cut energy costs, invest in new and emerging technologies, and tackle inflation head on. We look forward to House passage later this week and to seeing this bill become law.”
