OPEIU Statement on the Passing of TTD President Larry Willis

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.

Attention Nonprofit Employees: Public Service Loan Forgiveness Deadline is Oct. 31

The Oct. 31 deadline is fast approaching for public sector employees to apply for student loan relief through the U.S. Department of Education's Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program.

Many OPEIU members work for "public service employers," which includes many nonprofits, and are thus eligible to take advantage of temporary changes that make it easier to qualify for loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

Take Advantage of Public Service Loan Forgiveness Changes Before Oct. 31

Many OPEIU members work for "public service employers," which includes many nonprofits, and are thus eligible to take advantage of temporary changes that make it easier to qualify for loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. 

More specifically, under the temporary waiver:

  • Borrowers who have Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL), Perkins loans or other federal student loans can consolidate their loans into a Direct Consolidation Loan and receive PSLF credit for periods of repayment prior to consolidation. Periods of repayment on parent PLUS loans are not eligible under the limited PSLF waiver. Before consolidating, borrowers should check to see if they work for a qualifying employer using the PSLF Help Tool.
  • Past periods of repayment will now count regardless of whether a borrower made a payment, or made that payment on time, for the full amount due, or on a qualifying repayment plan.

Be sure to check your eligibility for the PSLF waiver before the changes expire on Oct. 31, 2022.

Unfortunately, union staff are not eligible for this program. Be sure to visit the OPEIU Membership Benefits page to learn about the OPEIU Student Debt Reduction Program and the educational scholarships available for OPEIU members and their families.

Union Coalition Files Unfair Practice Charge Against the State of New Jersey Judiciary Over COVID Policy (August 24. 2021)

Late last week, JCAU Council and CWA 1036 jointly filed an Unfair Labor Practice Charge as well as a petition for immediate restraints with the Public Employment Relations Commission to challenge the Judiciary’s recently announced vaccine and testing policy. While the immediate restraints were denied, the underlying ULP is moving forward.  The ULP is based on the near-immediate imposition of the policy without impact negotiations with the Unions. The Unfair Practice process is underway and procedural steps are scheduled over the next 2-3 weeks. We will keep members updated on any developments.
