‘We are urging you to put aside Washington partisanship, support President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, and make critical investments in Georgia’s infrastructure.’
Today, unions representing over 3,000 members across the metro Atlanta area released a series of letters to Georgia’s Republican Members of Congress urging them to support President Biden’s $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal. In their letters, Atlanta North Georgia Labor Council, Amalgamated Transit Union Chapter 732, and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists – Metro Atlanta Chapter laid out the need for infrastructure investments in Georgia and highlighted the overwhelming benefits Georgia workers and families will receive once the bill is passed.
Supported by a bipartisan group of Senators, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will grow the economy, enhance our competitiveness, create good jobs, and make our economy more sustainable, resilient, and just. The deal is a critical step towards repairing and rebuilding Georgia roads and bridges, improving sustainable transportation options for millions of Georgians, and connecting every Georgian to high-speed internet.
