Infrastructure matters. Roads, water-treatment plants, bridges, the rigs and pipelines that make America run – we don’t think about them until something goes wrong. The harm to our economy is bad enough when we experience infrastructure problems. Far worse is when these problems become life-and-death tragedies.
This week, May 16-23, 2016, the International Union of Operating Engineers and others are telling the story of what infrastructure means to Americans in our daily lives. Join us in making infrastructure a nationwide topic of conversation. It matters elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.
Coordinated by a Steering Committee, representing America’s business, labor, and policy-making leadership
, and comprised of more than 100 Affiliate organizations
from all sectors of America’s economy and civil society, Infrastructure Week is the largest, most diverse, non-partisan coalition of organizations dedicated to strengthening America by rebuilding our infrastructure. Critically, Infrastructure Week unites both traditional stakeholders with those whose lives, livelihoods and businesses run on infrastructure: manufacturers, retailers, passengers, travel and tourism companies, and the towns, counties, and cities home to them.
