Posted by admin on 05/19/2014

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald spoke at a #SOSJobs Rally today in Munhall, Pennsylvania and said that a trade case on dumped steel pipe imports is crucial to the region.

“Right here we have Democrats and Republicans coming together.  Management and labor are coming together.  And all we’re asking is for a level playing field.

“When I hear that the Keystone pipeline is going to be made with pipe from other countries, I say, ‘We want that pipeline built with pipe made right here in in the Keystone State.’”

He added that he also wanted it made here because “nobody makes it better than we do.  We’ve got to make sure that our Departments of Commerce and Justice fight for trade deals that work for Americans and for the people of western Pennsylvania."

Take action.
