NZAHT Civil Engineering Minnesotans say the U.S. civil engineers union won’t bargain with the Trump administration because they believe the administration is “anti-civil engineering.”
The union says the Trump Administration has “no plans to address civil engineering’s needs” and “has made no progress in addressing our needs.”
It also argues the Trump’s plan to slash federal funding for civil engineering programs is a “threat to our safety and the safety of the people we serve.”
NZAHS Civil Engineers President Michael McKeown said in a statement that the union’s decision was a “clear rebuke of the administration.”
“We will not negotiate with the federal government unless they reverse the policies of the Trump regime,” McKeon said.
NZAHA Civil Engineers Director Michael Karp said the union has made “no effort to reach out” to the Trump campaign or administration about their “inadequate” funding proposals.
“They have made no efforts to address our needs, nor are we going to seek them,” Karp added.
NIAA Civil Engineers Association President Mark Stutzman said in an email that the civil engineers association has not been approached by the Trump Campaign or administration regarding the funding plan.
He added that the organization has been “open to constructive dialogue.”
The U.N. is calling for $400 billion in new federal funding to help the U:S.
fight climate change.
The U:s Office of Management and Budget has said the plan would help with “climate adaptation and mitigation” and to fund infrastructure projects such as roads, water, and electricity.
“Climate change impacts are expected to increase by more than 10 percent by 2050 if emissions continue to grow at their current rate,” the agency said in its budget document released this week.
NGA Civil Engineers Federation President Brian Follins said the U’s proposed budget plan “puts civil engineering in a terrible financial position.”
Follis said the federal budget proposal, released Thursday, “put a major strain on our ability to recruit and retain civil engineers and other civil engineers.”
NIGA Civil Engineering Association President and CEO Jeff Jones said in his statement that while the federal agency is in favor of climate adaptation and climate mitigation, the proposed budget “has no specific plan for addressing climate change and does not include the necessary resources for addressing the growing threat of extreme weather events and climate change.”
NIAAA Civil Engineering Director Brian Karp echoed that sentiment.
“We are currently reviewing the budget and we will be taking a close look at it and making our own decisions about how to respond to this budget,” Karsons said.
A federal agency that is not involved in climate change, says the U, has made no effort to address its needs.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Bethesda, Maryland, says climate change has not affected its funding and it does not consider climate change a threat to the United States.
NISA Civil Engineering President John Hirschberg said in the statement that NISAHA has made it clear to the Administration that the group will not engage in negotiations.
The U: States government has made progress in climate adaptation, climate mitigation and the economy, but the administration’s proposed Budget for 2019 cuts federal funding from programs that address the climate change issue, according to a statement from NISAAA.
NIGR Civil Engineering Union President Michael Stutz said in another statement that “there is no reason why the NIGER Civil Engineering Group can’t work with the NISAAA and NISAAC to find a way to address the serious impacts of climate change on the lives of Americans and the economic and social impacts on the American people.”
“NIGER will be ready to work with both the NIST and NISASAA to address climate change as part of the broader national response to the impacts of global warming,” Stutzmer said.
“The NIGERS Budget provides for $2.6 trillion in federal funding that is needed to meet the needs of the U.:s civil engineers for the next decade.”
NIDA Civil Engineering National Institute Director Brian Loeffler said in addition to funding for climate adaptation programs, the budget would increase the number of people working at the NIDA and NIGES in order to keep up with the growth of the civil engineering workforce.
“We can’t do this without the NIAASAA and our partner partners,” Loepp said.
Civil engineers and their unions have also warned that climate change could cause a decline in the country’s workforce, leading to increased economic uncertainty.
NIST said in April that climate-related job losses would likely be “more severe than in the past, particularly as climate change increases.”
