Laborers Local 563: Construction will continue on Dakota Access

The Dakota Access Pipeline has broad support from labor unions – both in North Dakota and across the country.  Fact Checker recently released a video detailing the broad national support for the project.  But the support for the project on the ground is also strong.

According to Cory Bryson, a business agent with Laborers Local 563, in an interview with Bismarck CBS affiliate KXMB-TV, “It kinda reaffirms with what we’ve known all along that this is one hundred percent project that Dakota Access is pursuing and building, and we’re just excited to be a part of it.”

Workers have faced a lengthy stoppage on top of threats from protestors for the past month.
