America’s offshore wind industry is growing, creating quality, family-sustaining jobs and helping to drive the nation’s clean energy future. This week, the BlueGreen Alliance said that the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunity Act introduced by Reps. Niki Tsongas (D-MA), Bill Keating (D-MA), and Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) will ensure that workers have access to the skills training they need to take advantage of this emerging industry.
“The UWUA applauds the introduction of the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunity Act, recognizing the bright future of offshore wind energy production along the Eastern seaboard, and around the world,” said Mike Langford, National President of the Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA).
