Honoring Public Servants during Recognition Week and Every Day of the Year

Washington, DC (May 7, 2018) – LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan made the following statement on this year’s Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW):

LIUNA is proud to represent more than 70,000 public sector workers; who serve our nation with dedication and skill providing vital services for federal, state, local, and municipal governments.


As we honor these men and women that serve us, we must be vigilant in working together to protect good wages and benefits in the public sector. Public workers are facing increasing attacks by anti-worker special interests who are pushing state so-called right-to-work legislation and financing hostile lawsuits like the Janus case.


LIUNA stands shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with public sector workers who make all of our lives better, 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.
