Statement of Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA, On the Federal Government Shutdown

liuna_logo

Washington, D.C. (October 1, 2013) – It is exasperating that the U.S. House of Representatives has become so tied in political knots that it can no longer do its job and pass legislation to fund programs and services it has already authorized and to prevent a shutdown of the federal government.

The radical Tea Party Republicans are the tail wagging the dog. Their extremism puts our economy at risk and doing so for political gain is simply un-American.

As an organization that proudly represents more than 25,000 federal employees – workers who protect our national security, provide critical health care services to veterans and Native Americans, keep our skies safe and our parks clean, and of whom at least 5,000 are currently serving their country in the military – we appeal to House leadership to put an end to this dangerous circus. And Congress must then make the federal employees who have been victims whole by providing full back pay.

LiUNA Local 28 comments about the shutdown

“Jim Hewitt, a labor union leader at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, said workers don’t like Congress “playing games” with their jobs. 
“They’re frustrated and they’re exasperated,”said Hewitt, president of Laborer’s International Union of North America Local 28. 
The union is nonpartisan but Hewitt said he blamed Republican leaders in Congress for the shutdown by seeking a delay in implementation of the Affordable Care Act in budget negotiations. Republicans have blamed the Democrats for not working to reach a compromise on a temporary budget measure that would have avoided a shutdown. 
“At this point, we’re holding the Republican responsible,” Hewitt said. “We’d like to see their pay and benefits taken away.”
