Union Boss Who Endorsed Biden Turns Against Him

(WND) The boss of a major union has complained that Joe Biden gave in to the “voices of fringe activists” when the president killed the Keystone XL pipeline, but it shouldn’t have been a surprise, because the union endorsed the Democrat after he announced he would make the move.

Biden revoked the permit on his first day in office, drawing condemnation by the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters, known as the UA.

“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” said UA President Mark McManus.”

McManus argued that there’s no issue with the environment, insisting that when “built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the world.”

Without the pipeline, the oil must be transported with trains that are subject to derailing.

As a result of Biden’s order, thousands of union workers are out of work, and, for the average American family, “energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction.”

…Last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement expressing his disappointment with Biden for revoking the pipeline permit while Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he was “deeply disturbed” and threatened legal action.

Kenney noted that the U.S. is Canada’s most important ally and trading partner.
