The Sunday Shale Show: Guest Sean McGarvey, President, AFL-CIO’s Building & Construction Trades

For The Sunday Shale Show this week, Energy in Depth sat down with Mr. Sean McGarvey, President, of the AFL-CIO’s Building and Construction Trades Department. Recently Mr. McGarvey was in Ohio meeting with local leaders to talk about shale development and how it is impacting workers in the building trades.

“Right now just with the known quantities of our natural resources both in shale gas and oil we are looking at over the next 25 years an excess of $3 trillion of investment it is absolutely phenomenal what is going on.” – Mr. Sean McGarvey, National Building Trades

As Mr. McGarvey acknowledged, there is great potential in the future development of our state’s shale deposits, and its potential is recognized worldwide, with more and more interest and investment coming in to the Buckeye State.

For this reason, the building trades and other organizations (like Energy in Depth) have placed a priority on educating the public about the industry, its practices, and the incredible benefits this continued development will bring for Ohio’s workforce and its communities.

Energy in Depth thanks Mr. McGarvey for his efforts, and for joining us on The Sunday Shale Show. We look forward to continuing to work with those working directly or indirectly with the oil and gas industry to provide in-depth analysis of what’s taking place in Ohio (and beyond), and what it means for our communities and our state.

Stay tuned for The Sunday Shale Show next week!
