Protect Jobs and Our Environment

In 2019, Michigan filed a lawsuit seeking to shut down parts of the Enbridge 5 pipeline that passes under the Straits of Mackinac, waterways that connect Lake Huron and Lake Michigan between the state’s upper and lower peninsulas. Jobs are in jeopardy and the financial viability of the Toledo plant and community are in jeopardy. Losing Line 5 could result not only in lost jobs for Local 912 members, but shuttered restaurants, gas stations, hotels, grocery stores and other businesses in the area around the refinery.
