Transportation Labor Joins President Obama’s Call to Rebuild Transportation System, Put Millions to Work

In a statement released by the President of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), Edward Wytkind met with President Obama, Secretary Geithner, Secretary LaHood, and a number of governors and mayors about moving significant transportation investment initiatives forward.

“America needs shorter commutes, fewer air travel delays, more transit and passenger rail options, modernized bridges, highways and freight rail networks, and an expanded port and maritime system. No one disagrees about this — business, labor, and all Americans benefit from more infrastructure investment that will build our economy for the future. We can do this by putting millions of Americans to work in the type of good jobs that transportation investments have supported for more than a century,” said Wytkind.
