U.S. Representative Robert Brady said, “This is a perfect example of how labor, business and government can work together to get things done. Everyone from Sunoco’s Brian MacDonald to Carlyle’s David Marchick and Rodney Cohen to Leo Gerard and Jim Savage of USW, to the White House and Governor Corbett worked as hard as they could to make this happen. The best part of this deal is that we’re not just saving 850 jobs. We’re laying the ground work for thousands of construction jobs, permanent refinery jobs and all the other jobs related to the suppliers and contractors who work with this plant. I couldn’t be prouder than I am to have been a part of this.”
Leo W. Gerard, International President, United Steelworkers, said, “Not only will good paying manufacturing jobs be saved, but new ones will be created as this vital facility is improved and expanded. This project demonstrates how all stakeholders benefit when private capital, industry, government and labor work together for the collective benefit of society.”
