On September 25 at the inaugural United Association Tripartite Conference in Mokena, Illinois, Bill Hite, General President of the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, delivered a message to politicians all across the U.S.:
"The Plumbers and Pipe Fitters Union will only support political candidates who support nuclear power."Thanks, Bill. It's good to know who your friends are. Here's hoping the message gets out.
UPDATE: Organized labor's support for new nuclear is a global phenomenon, with recent support coming from Scotland and South Africa.
