Minnesota Court of Appeals Affirms Line 3 replacement project permits


Local 49 Business Manager Jason George stated:

“Today is a good day for common sense. Line 3 replacement project is the most studied pipeline in history, and with today’s ruling, the process is finally over. We strongly encourage everyone to finally accept the legal result. I am extremely proud of the membership today. Local 49 members showed up for years, participated in the process, made their views heard, and followed the science and the facts. Combating the misinformation spread about this project was the critical factor that led to this day. I also could not be prouder of the men and women in our trade that are building this project. Their professionalism, their skill, and their determination to get the job done safely and ahead of schedule is a shining example to all project owners of the value of building projects with the Operating Engineers. Today is a day to celebrate, and our members look forward to finishing the job this year.”
