LIUNA Local 1776

Strength in Numbers...that's what being a LIUNA National Guard member means.  

The Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA) was founded in 1903.
Nearly 120 years later, we are one of the largest and most aggressive labor organizations in the
US and Canada, boasting a combined total of 560,000 members across a variety of industries in both private and public sector (government) employment. LIUNA uses that collective strength to make sure your voice is heard by lawmakers both in your home state/territory and in Washington DC.  

As part of LIUNA, Local 1776’s specialized mission is to represent, you,
Federal employees of the National Guard. Over the last 10 years we have been the
one’s responsible for many of the changes that have enhanced the National Guard civilian
employee program, to include leading the charge in securing the right for employees to appeal
adverse administrative actions to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), conversion of Dual-Status Technicians to Title 5, and codifying Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) protections into Federal law.

Moving forward, our top legislative priorities include securing access to TRICARE Reserve Select
and reforming the military retention board process to ensure Dual-Status Technicians can reach
FERS retirement age.  

We are, by far, the most active and professional National Guard Technician and Title 5
organization in the country, and we invite you to join us so that we can be even stronger on your behalf. Please take a look at the materials included inside this folder to get more information about our legislative activity and to see how becoming a member of Local 1776 will benefit you and your family.   

It would our honor and privilege to count you as one of the LIUNA family.
