Unions that endorsed Biden during election turn on him after cancellation of Keystone pipeline

Typically, a successful Democratic presidential candidate spends a significant portion of campaign energy to secure the endorsements of as many unions as possible, which is exactly what President Joe Biden did in his 2020 run.

According to The Blaze, those unions are already having a serious case of buyer’s remorse, as they’re now reacting to Biden’s job-murdering decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline project and other projects in the U.S. energy sector that will relegate tens of thousands of blue-collar union workers to the unemployment line in short order. 

Instead of bolstering the U.S job economy, one of Biden’s first measures, when he sat down behind the Resolute Desk, was to immediately shut down the pipeline project via executive order. The unions involved in that industry and the countless industries that supported that project are firing back.

“Killing 10,000 jobs and taking $2.2 billion in payroll out of workers’ pockets is not what Americans need or want right now,” said Andy Black, president and CEO of the Association of Oil Pipe Lines.

The Laborers’ International Union of North America, another union that endorsed Biden in his 2020 presidential run, appeared to be extremely upset about the sudden and shocking move.

“Pipeline construction has been a lifeline for many #LIUNA members across the country,” the LUNA union tweeted. “The anticipated decision to cancel the Keystone Pipeline will kill thousands of good-paying UNION jobs!”

Adding to the growing list of ticked-off union heads were both the pro-Biden North American Building Trades Unions and The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters. Both organizations expressed their extreme disappointment in Biden’s job-killing measures on his first day in the White House.

“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,” the plumbers and pipefitters union said in a statement reacting to the news.

According to Fox Business, failed presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who will likely be the next U.S. Transporation Secretary, defended the cancellation of the pipeline, claiming that jobs created in the clean energy sector in the future will “offset” the losses upfront.

Try telling that to the tens of thousands of union workers who won’t be able to provide for their families now that Biden has buckled to the demands of the radical, progressive environmentalists in the Democrat party.

  1. THEN MAYBE INSTEAD OF VOTING FOR BIDEN YOU SHOULD OF CHECKED OT WHAT TRUMP WAS SAYING ABOUT THE ELECTION YOU SHOULD OF STARTED A INVESTIGATION BUT OH NO YOU SAID HE WAS A LIAR !!!

  2. Again did you ever look at Biden’s record all he ever did was lie & do stupid things. You got what you deserve for going with Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. How could they know what he stood for, he never gave an interview or came out of his basement. All the people knew was what the press wanted them to know. All lies of course. So sorry people. We are stuck with the left now and I pray that they won’t have enough time in office to completely destroy our country.

    1. How could they not know what he stood for – he is a democrat and that should tell them all they need to know for heavens sake. He couldn’t stop talking about the green new deal killing any energy jobs not linked to that!! Along with open borders, tax payer funded abortions, padding the Supreme Court, allowing biological men to compete in women’s sports and shower in girls locker rooms … and the list goes on!

  4. I hope every union in the country turns against this Senile Old Man. They usually stick together, so keeping my fingers crossed. Should have listened to President Trump instead of this idiot that never knew what he was saying.

  5. It’s amazing how union leaders always want to push you to vote for the Democrat but without doing proper research and knowing the background of this guy he’s always been a backstabber, in 47 years he didn’t do a damn thing but helped destroy this country and now you got the fool in the driver’s seat !!! I hope this isn’t calling for America to really wake up and see what that party is has been and always will be about !!! a good example as why are they allowing historic monuments to be destroyed it’s because they want their history covered up so they can try to change it they’ve been the perpetrators since the civil war of racism and also the creators of the KKK !!!

  6. All I can say is that Obama finally figured out a way to get reelected again, elect Biden—who always did what Obama said to do.
    I told you so, but nobody would listen.

  7. The unions have mostly been leeches. They take money from workers paychecks and give damn little in return. Why not check where the money they collect goes? The workers need to audit where their union dues go.

  8. The teachers Union backed Biden as well…..Democrats are going to destroy everything good about this great country. For those of you who voted for him you can blame yourselves. YOU ARE THE MOST UNINFORMED PEOPLE on the planet. DON’T WATCH mainstream media and listen to Hollywood!!!!! IDIOTS!!!

  17. My coder is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous
    about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
