A Friday protest shut down work on Enbridge Line 3 pipeline replacement work outside Superior for about an hour. There were no issues and no arrests, according to Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec. It was the second protest of the week. The first, on Aug. 21, shut down work for about two hours, according to the Duluth News Tribune. Both protests took place along Douglas County Road W, what an Enbridge spokeswoman described to Tribune reporter Brady Slater as a 12.5- mile segment of the new line.
The Douglas County Board took a stand against a budget proposal that would eliminate Wisconsin's 1931 prevailing wage law. The law, which requires employers to pay skilled trades for public projects what local workers are paid, would be repealed as part of the 2017-2019 biennial budget. Changes were made to the law in 1996, and again in the 2015-2017 state budget. The latest changes only require a prevailing wage on state-owned projects. Federal prevailing wage laws would still be in places for projects funded by the federal government.
