American Families Plan Will Help Working Class

Washington, D.C. (April 28, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

The American Families Plan, announced today by the White House, is an investment in a better future for working families.


LIUNA members have been fighting since our founding in 1903 to make better lives for ourselves and our families. Having a strong union has meant that members are able to count on good wages and benefits that can be a ladder to the middle class. However, without family-supporting policies like those contained in the far-reaching American Families Plan, there are still too many barriers to success for millions of Americans.


LIUNA commends the White House on their new vision through the American Families Plan of an America that does more than talk about family but is willing to provide support and investment to ensure a pathway to the middle class for all working families.



The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build the United States and Canada.
