Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Dennis L. Martire, Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), made the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 


The outpouring of gratitude and admiration for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a testament to the tremendous impact she had on so many lives.

She paved her way to the Supreme Court with courage and conviction. Like those in the labor movement, she fought not for herself but for others as she said that “if you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself.” Justice Ginsburg’s fight for equal pay and equal rights in the workplace will continue to inspire the labor movement.

All who are honoring Justice Ginsburg must also honor her wish for a just replacement. Filling her seat must be met with the same fairness and equality that she stood for throughout her entire career. For those who still needed a reason to vote in this election, vote to carry on Justice Ginsburg’s legacy.
