Labor Movement Against the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline

We are active members, shop stewards, staff and elected local, regional and national officers of unions and workers’ organizations based in the United States.

We urge the State Department and the President not to grant approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.

In so doing, we stand in solidarity with the Tar Sands workers in Alberta represented by the Canadian Energy and Paperworkers Union; the Alberta Federation of Labour, and the Canadian Labour Congress. We commend those unions and individual trade unionists in the U.S. for actively and publicly opposing the Keystone XL Pipeline.

We also stand in solidarity with First Nations and other communities whose families and livelihoods have been harmed by the Tar Sands. By opposing Keystone XL (and the proposed Enbridge pipeline across British Columbia) we join with those farmers, ranchers, and community members who live along the route and are concerned about the damage that spills from the pipeline will have on their water and land. And we add our voices to those in the environmental movements in the US and Canada who unequivocally oppose Keystone XL because it will have serious environmental, climate change, pollution and health impacts.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
