General President O'Sullivan's response to Keystone Veto

Washington, DC. (February 24, 2015) – LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan has the following comment on President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline bill:

“Given that the Administration has done everything it can to delay and block the creation of good construction careers on the Keystone XL Pipeline, the veto can be described with two words: disgustingly predictable.”

Kentucky is Rauner's model
SPRINGFIELD — Gov. Bruce Rauner may be looking to the Bluegrass State for inspiration when it comes to bringing right-to-work laws to Illinois. In Kentucky, where attempts to put a statewide law on the books have stalled, counties have taken the lead in recent weeks by moving forward with their own anti-union laws. Read More...

LiUNA's Terry O'Sullivan on Dr Martin Luther King Jr
Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, a leader who has great significance to America and the world, but particularly to LIUNA. Dr. King waged a heroic battle for equality among all men and women.
