    Default Hoffa Calls on N.D. Governor to Help Pipeline Workers

    Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa has signed onto a letter with three other union leaders asking North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple to protect Dakota Access Pipeline workers from protestors who have attempted to shut down the project.

    Hoffa was joined by the heads of LiUNA, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union on the Aug. 22 letter, which notes demonstrators have created an atmosphere that is unsafe not only for those working on the pipeline, but for law enforcement and the protestors themselves.
    Four states, including North Dakota, previously approved the pipeline. Although the public was given multiple chances to comment on its construction over a two-year period leading up to the project’s approval, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe – which is leading the demonstrations – chose not to participate.
