Honoring Our Nation's Public Employees

Washington, DC (May 2, 2019) – LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan made the following statement on this year’s Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW), May 5-11.

Now and every day, we should honor those who serve our nation through a career dedicated to providing vital services for federal, state, and local governments. LIUNA proudly represents more than 50,000 public sector workers.

More than ever, we must be vigilant in working together to protect good wages and benefits in the public sector so that we continue to serve these men and women that work daily to make all of our lives better. Public workers are facing increasing attacks by anti-worker special interests who are pushing legislation to harm public workers' rights to bargain and organize.

LIUNA stands shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with public sector workers during Public Service Recognition Week and every day of the year.

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 America.
