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.
