U.S. project labor agreement
Keystone XL has a project labor agreement (PLA) with four leading U.S. labor unions that will inject hundreds of millions of dollars in middle-class wages into the American economy, while ensuring this pipeline will be built by the highest-skilled and highest-trained workforce.
TC Energy is also working with labor to establish a unique Green Jobs Training Program by contributing approximately $10 million to help union members acquire the specific skills needed to work in the developing renewable energy sector.
“We are proud to partner with these union trades and craft workers to ensure this pipeline will be built by qualified professionals with specialized skills to the highest safety and quality standards,” said Richard Prior, President of Keystone XL. “We are especially proud of the new Green Jobs Training Program, which is an investment in thousands of current and future union workers.”
