ATU Mourns the passing of TTD President Larry Willis

ATU International President John Costa issued the following statement on the passing of TTD president Larry Willis from injuries sustained in biking accident.
“We are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic passing of Larry Willis, president of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO. A true friend of the ATU, Larry dedicated more than 20 years of his life to fighting for the rights and dignity of all transportation workers. While most of our members did not know Larry personally, they are far better off for the tireless work that he put in, day after day, for the benefit of working families. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Larry’s wife, Amy, his daughter, Samantha, his entire family, friends and colleagues at the TTD.”
