Three unions seemed to be regretting endorsing President Joe Biden after his first day in office.
Biden revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Wednesday, destroying thousands of union jobs.
“Leaving the Keystone XL pipeline permit in place would not be consistent with my Administration’s economic and climate imperatives,” Biden said, according to The Associated Press.
Keystone XL President Richard Prior said more than 1,000 unionized jobs would also be eliminated in the next few weeks as it slowly shuts down the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline.
