API President Jack Gerard promoted the partnership between labor and the oil and natural gas industry while speaking at the 2016 North America’s Building Trades Legislative Conference at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.
“At the core of our partnership is our common goal to protect and promote job growth and economic opportunity for American workers. The partnership between the oil and natural gas industry and North America’s Building Trades Unions is critical to ensuring that our nation continues as a global energy leader and that consumers continue to enjoy abundant, reliable and affordable energy here at home. Put simply, these benefits of America’s energy revolution are built upon the hard work of you and your brothers and sisters across our nation. Together we have brought about an American energy revolution that has delivered positive change to America’s workers, consumers and environment.”
