Construction workers invade Lansing to support DRIC and 10,000 Michigan jobs

Construction workers and tradesmen from the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, International Union of Operating Engineers, Laborers’ International Union of North America, and International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers were in Lansing today to support House Bill 4961 and the Detroit River International Crossing (DRIC).

Construction workers and tradesmen are urging the Michigan Senate to stop bickering and put Michigan construction workers back on the job by passing legislation that would allow the DRIC to move forward, a project that will provide 10,000 jobs for Michigan construction workers. The legislation has broad, bi-partisan support from both business and labor.
