U.S. Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette visited Boilermakers at the Local 154 (Pittsburgh) training center on Sept. 22 for a tour and discussion about the future of energy production in the United States and Boilermakers’ critical role in the energy industry.
“It’s an understatement to say the Boilermakers have a lot at stake when it comes to the future of energy in the U.S., and Pennsylvania is pretty much ground zero right now for decisions that will impact our work, our jobs and our union,” said IVP John Fultz, who participated in the visit. “It was important to us—and a great honor—to have Energy Secretary Brouillette take time out to meet with us at L-154, learn what sets Boilermakers apart as the best in the industry and hear our concerns.”
