NPMHU Supports LIUNA Statement on the Killing of George Floyd

Washington, D.C. (June 1, 2020) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – issued the following statement today: 

LIUNA is united in grief and sadness over the heinous and unconscionable killing of George Floyd.  Once and for all, we must come together as a nation and as a people, to stamp out and extinguish the flames of bigotry, discrimination, and racial, social, and economic injustice. 

We stand shoulder to shoulder with all those who are committed to tearing down the walls of inequality and racism that have plagued our nation for far too long. The men and women of LIUNA strongly support the right to peacefully demonstrate, which is a founding principle of our nation, our union, and our society.  We condemn the lawless cowards who are exploiting these terrible times - acting with violence and disregard for the values of our democracy.

In memory of George Floyd and all those who have tragically and unjustly lost their lives, we must recommit ourselves to the fight to eradicate bigotry and discrimination and to bring about the critical reforms our country so desperately needs.  We must never forget that one of the most powerful tools of social change that is available to us—is the ballot box.  We must be united in our vigilance and determination to elect leaders at every level of government that reflect our values for justice, equality, and fairness for all.
