Majority of those working on Enbridge pipeline from outside Minnesota
February 19, 2021
Enbridge has fallen considerably short of goals to hire Minnesota workers for its controversial new 340-mile oil pipeline across the northern part of the state.
The Calgary, Alberta-based company and union representatives have said they had expected at least 50% of its construction workforce to be from Minnesota.
But at the end of December - the first full month of construction - just 33% of the 4,664 workers building the replacement for Enbridge's current Line 3 were Minnesota residents, according to a recent filing with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
