Statement from Michigan Laborers Business Manager on Governor’s Move to Shut Down Line 5

“Shutting down Line 5 would hurt workers and it would hurt families. Labor and business, Republicans and Democrats, we all support the Great Lakes Tunnel because it creates and protects jobs and affordable energy. Today’s move will kill jobs and increase fuel costs. That’s the last thing Michigan needs as we work to overcome the coronavirus pandemic.”
