OPEIU Statement on the Passing of TTD President Larry Willis

The officers and staff of the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) extend their deepest condolences on the passing of TTD President Larry Willis. Larry was a tireless advocate for working families and their unions, having dedicated his career to uplifting the voices of transportation workers throughout the country, including OPEIU's helicopter pilots.

As a member of the TTD, OPEIU has always recognized the crucial role the department plays in advocating on behalf of our members, many of whom often work under extremely dangerous conditions. We are forever indebted to Larry and the work he did to improve the working and safety conditions for them and all transportation workers. Under his skillful direction, TTD became a stronger, more effective force for good. We all will reap the benefits of his efforts and accomplishments for years to come.

We are proud to have known and served alongside Larry Willis, and mourn his untimely passing. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and all who knew and loved him. 

Happy Thanksgiving from Your Union

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we continue to be impressed by and thankful for OPEIU members' hard work this past year in the face of uncertainty and crisis. With the new year approaching, we know there are plenty of challenges still to be met. OPEIU is committed as ever to fighting for our members, and we are working to ensure every working person will have a larger slice of the pie by this time next year.

From the bargaining table to the Thanksgiving table, OPEIU is proud to call you family. Happy Thanksgiving!
