  • The first advanced nuclear power plants are just years away from construction. With the right federal support, the United States can turn demonstration projects into a full-scale industry and tens of thousands of high-wage, high-skill, union jobs.

    Please join Third Way for a virtual event on Tuesday, June 22, at 3:00 PM ET to discuss how policies like the American Jobs Plan can get one of the nation’s newest clean energy industries up and running. We’ll explore how to develop the domestic supply chain while building on the nuclear sector’s strong record of supporting union workers in construction, manufacturing, and engineering. We’ll hear from industry experts, union leaders, and the Biden Administration on ways to advance America’s economic and workforce goals while delivering new tools to fight climate change
