President Joe Biden recently signed into law the CHIPS and Science Act “to strengthen domestic semiconductor manufacturing, design and research, fortify the economy and national security, and reinforce America’s chip supply chains.”
Yesterday, 180 Members of Congress outlined steps the Department of Commerce can take to ensure these investments in the semiconductor industry prioritize good-paying, union jobs, support domestic supply chains, and respond to current national security challenges, in a letter which calls for labor inclusivity and accountability in semiconductor manufacturing for the CHIPS and Science Act.

Thank you to our local members of Congress for signing onto this effort and supporting good union jobs: Congressmember Mike Levin, Congressmember Scott Peters, and Congressmember Juan Vargas – and thank you Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez (D-CA), Co-chair of the Congressional Labor Caucus, Congressman Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), Congressman Brian Higgins (D-NY), and Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI) for leading this effort!
