Local 49 today released the following statement in response to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) decision not to reconsider the issuance of the Line 3 Replacement Project’s Route Permit.
Local 49 Business Manager Jason George released the following statement, “Today is a milestone for the Line 3 replacement project. The MNPUC process is over. We thank the MNPUC for a thorough review of this project and for following the facts of the case. I would like to personally thank our members. You showed up to hearing for 4 years, you demonstrated your professionalism, your pride in our craft, and the care with which you build projects like Line 3. I can’t wait for 49ers to start moving dirt on this project in 2019!”
