Tillerson Strong Nominee for Secretary of State

Washington, D.C. (December 13, 2016) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement on the nomination of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State:

I have had the personal privilege of working with Rex Tillerson for many years and can attest to his strong management experience, his integrity and his ability to lead. His talents and expertise make him well-suited to the position of Secretary of State.

 

Working directly with Tillerson in his role on the Oil & Natural Gas Industry Labor-Management Committee, I have found him to be a great leader as well as an individual who has a strong grasp of the pressing issues that face our nation globally and a deep and abiding patriotism that guides him professionally and personally.

 

With Tillerson as Secretary of State, I couldn’t be more confident of our nation’s ability to forge stronger partnerships with our allies.
