LIUNA Stands with Representative Rodney Davis

Washington, D.C. (June 19, 2018) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

Representative Rodney Davis has been a stalwart champion and ally of the members of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA). We are proud to call him our friend and we wholeheartedly support his reelection and are committed to seeing that Members of Congress who support our members and their families like the Congressman are returned to continue their good work.

 

Congressman Davis represents the kind of public servant that Congress desperately needs. He cares about the policy implications of his actions, he has reached out to LIUNA and other unions to understand issues we care about and their effect on workers and his constituents. He engages with LIUNA, our leaders, staff and members regularly, not only when he is raising money because a fundraiser has passed him a note.

 

He has repeatedly led the charge in the Republican Conference against the anti-worker agenda of the radical right wing. His support for family supporting prevailing wage laws (Davis Bacon), community building Project Labor Agreements (PLAs), and job creating infrastructure and energy projects has been unwavering.

 

Politics is ugly, but when somebody stands with you against the ugliness of extreme partisanship, they deserve support.  Rodney Davis deserves our union’s support, and he has it.
