Calling all Brockton area members: Rally Tuesday
Posted by on

Members from all NERCC Local Unions that live south of Boston are asked to attend a massive rally to support Brockton Clean Energy, a proposed natural gas plant in Brockton. Members will gather at 6:00pm on Tuesday, April 21 in front of Brockton City Hall at 45 School St. to rally prior to a City Council??s meeting, which will consider the project.

Building the project will create 300 union construction jobs that will last 2 years. Thereafter, the plant will provide necessary energy and other economic benefits to the area. It has been approved by the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Office and the Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board, which motioned 8-0 to approve the development. The Mayor and City Council members have said they will take their cue from the people.

Project developers have made a commitment to use union carpenters on a project that will benefit the community. We need to show our support for this project!

Directions:
Route 24 to Exit 18A, Route 27 for 3 Miles to
45 School St (Downtown Brockton)
Parking at 90 Main St, 66 Green St or Downtown garage
