LIUNA Celebrates 120 Years of Growth

Washington, D.C. (April 13, 2023) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

Today, as LIUNA leaders are gathered from across the United States and Canada to celebrate the union’s anniversary and strategize on growth, LIUNA members are poised to seize on expanded opportunities building both U.S. and Canadian infrastructure.

LIUNA was founded in 1903 when 25 delegates from 23 independent laborers local unions representing more than 8,000 laborers gathered in Washington, DC to join together to improve their lives. Since LIUNA’s founding, the union has become a powerhouse of workers across North America, a half-million strong, known as a skilled and experienced workforce. Chartered as a construction union, LIUNA is also one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public employees, federal employees, and service contract workers.

Over the decades, LIUNA members have also become known for their advocacy and political strength. LIUNA members are proud to support working-class champions who will fight together with us for good, family-supporting union jobs. Through our advocacy and political muscle, we have won massive jobs-creating investment that has the potential to transform our nation, build the labor movement, and create hundreds of thousands of good laborers jobs.

As LIUNA celebrates this important milestone, our future has never looked brighter and I am convinced that LIUNA’s best days are still ahead of us.

NPMHU President and LiUNA Vice President Paul Hogrogian was honored to address the assembly of growth and history. Brother Hogrogian spoke about the Mail Handlers history with LiUNA that dates back to 1968. “We are proud to be affiliated with LiUNA for 55 of these 120 years. Your battles have become our battles and our battles have become yours. You supported us on Postal Reform, and we support you on infrastructure, prevailing wages and other issues of vital importance…”
