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.

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

Key Legislation Messaging and Local Union Communication Survey



To All OPEIU Local Unions:

It's a very busy time in Washington with several key pieces of legislation pending that will significantly impact working families, including the PRO Act and the For the People Act of 2021 (voting rights).

To ensure consistent messaging and combat anti-worker efforts, OPEIU has put together messaging points on both pieces of legislation, along with some graphics that all local unions are encouraged to use in any publications, websites, social media postings or other communication methods. They are included below, and graphics are attached. We've also included an AFL-CIO statement, “Senate Rules Cannot be Used to Block a Workers First Agenda," which we hope you’ll find helpful. The Executive Council’s full statement is available here.
