Labor organization joins transit coalition

Posted on June 23, 2008

  

 

 

The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) joined with a coalition of business and transportation organizations, calling on candidates for office and elected officials to make taking care of the nation’s transportation foundation a national priority.

 

The coalition, Americans for Transportation Mobility, launched its “FasterBetterSafer” campaign, a nationwide effort to invest in U.S. roadways, bridges and public transportation systems.

 

 

The “FasterBetterSafer” effort complements LIUNA’s “Build America so America Works” initiative to create a new vision of how to care for America’s basic infrastructure, including its transportation system, waterways and schoolhouses.

 

 

LIUNA’s “Build America so America Works” initiative includes member mobilization, ongoing advertising to reach elected officials and opinion leaders, a new Website, www.LiunaBuildsAmerica.org, and The Petition to Build America, with a goal of 1 million voices telling Congress and the country’s next president to “build America so America works.”
