The Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, is shocked and deeply saddened by the death of Richard “Rick” Cutshaw, a longtime field representative with OPEIU Local 100 in Miramar, Fla.

Cutshaw was an innocent bystander tragically killed Thursday in the crossfire between policy and jewelry store robbers who had hijacked a UPS truck. Cutshaw dedicated his entire career to the labor movement, serving with Local 100 for the past 18 years where he represented more than 2,500 Miramar government supervisory employees in Broward County, Naples, Port St. Lucie, Miami Dade and at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Previously, he worked for many years with UFCW Local 1459 in Massachusetts.

New OPEIU Membership Benefit Available Now: The OPEIU Low-Cost Degree Program


OPEIU is pleased to announce the introduction of a new membership benefit, the OPEIU Low-Cost Degree Program.

OPEIU members and their families can now get their bachelor’s degree for much less through the new OPEIU Low-Cost Degree Program. OPEIU has partnered with Central State University, a public college near Dayton, Ohio, to bring members and their families an online bachelor’s degree in business administration or teacher education (Pre-K to 5th grade) for no more than $4,500 out-of-pocket per year for a full-time student, often significantly less. These costs include all tuition, fees and e-textbooks.
