LIUNA Statement on Chairman Shuster’s Proposal to Address Our Critical Infrastructure Needs

Washington, D.C. (July 24, 2018) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement on the release of an infrastructure discussion draft by House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA):

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster should be commended for releasing a thoughtful and balanced discussion draft to address our nation’s critical infrastructure needs.

LIUNA members are on the frontlines building and maintaining our nation's roads, bridges, and water and energy systems. We are also strong advocates for improving our crumbling infrastructure through sustainable long-term investment.

LIUNA is eager to work with the Administration and Congress to enact a broad, robust and bipartisan infrastructure package, which will grow the economy and create good family-supporting, middle-class jobs.
