A hundred miles or more easily. It doesn't involve actually sitting there and watching it. It's periodically inspecting the pipeline and otherwise sitting by the cell phone for possible calls and filling out paperwork. Those unions support any work for their unions. Yes.

They have nothing to gain or lose if it is made or isn't made.
