Support an Infrastructure plan that benefits working people
As a constituent who cares about preserving and strengthening our country's public education system, rebuilding a strong economy, creating good union jobs and forging communities that sustain and empower working people, I urge you to support H.R. 604: The Reopen and Rebuild America's Schools Act 2021 - a robust federal infrastructure package that acknowledges the needs of working people.
I believe it is important that a federal infrastructure plan must include significant investments in the K-12 school community, as detailed in the Reopen and Rebuild America's Schools Act. Community colleges, universities, and school districts' career and technical education (CTE) programs must also be adequately funded under the Act as manufacturers are gearing up for a changing economy, within which, to create union jobs for our future trade unionist.
In addition, the infrastructure plan must include stronger Buy American language for government and government-funded projects, expand all workers' rights to form and join unions by adopting the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, guarantee union and bargaining rights for public sector workers and prevent privatization of any public sector jobs and public resources.
Funding allocations should also be included to transition school bus fleets to American, union-made zero-emission buses and ensure nationwide broadband that will benefit schools and businesses alike.
Finally, a federal infrastructure plan that favors the needs of working people must include meaningful investments in hospital and community health centers – especially, in the communities of need that serve poor and underserved populations.
Therefore, I strongly urge you to work with your leadership to ensure passage of The Reopen and Rebuild America's Schools Act 2021 so that our working women and men are supported, union jobs are created and preserved, and that public sector jobs are not privatized.
