Washington, DC - As Infrastructure Week kicks off, a new national organization backed by trade unions with millions of members has launched a countrywide campaign to fix America’s roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, and the energy grid.

The nonpartisan group, ReBuild USA, announced its campaign by releasing a short video, “Disaster,” that highlights the threat to America’s people and economy if comprehensive efforts are not taken immediately to address our country’s infrastructure needs.

The group is backed by all 14 building-trades belonging to the North American Building Trades Union (NABTU). According to NABTU President Sean McGarvey:

“ReBuild USA will hold elected officials of both parties accountable for the promises they made in recent elections to fix our disastrous infrastructure and put Americans back to work. Our members and leadership are united also in supporting ReBuild USA’s effort to guarantee pro-worker protections, including prevailing wage standards at both the federal and state levels."
