Honoring Our Nation's Public Employees Today and Every Day

Washington, DC (May 4, 2020) – LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan made the following statement on this year’s Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW), May 3-9.

As we mark Public Service Recognition Week, we should both honor and support those who serve our nation by providing vital services for federal, state, and local governments. LIUNA is proud to represent more than 50,000 public sector workers.

 

As we confront the pandemic, many public workers are on the frontlines facing unique and unprecedented risks. LIUNA thanks you for your courage and for putting the needs of others before your own. Every single American owes you an enormous debt of gratitude for your service and your sacrifice.

 

We must also continue to be vigilant in working together to protect the health and safety as well as wages and benefits of those in the public sector for all that they do to keep us safe and make all of our lives better.

 

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