Passing of International President Larry Hanley

May 8, 2019

Hello My Brothers and Sisters:

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I write to inform you that our beloved International President Larry Hanley passed away suddenly yesterday. Our heartfelt sympathies and condolences go out to his family at this very difficult time.

This is more than a tremendous personal loss; it is a major blow to both the ATU and organized labor in general.For years, as a Local Union President, and then as a highly successful leader of our International Union, Brother Hanley was a consistently determined voice for the rights, agenda and dignity of working people and families, as well as a tireless advocate for social justice, human rights, economic fairness, and progressive politics.

Rest in peace, Brother Larry Hanley! Your Union and its members will never forget your life and achievements!

In Solidarity,

Art Aguilar
President/Business Agent

 


 

 

March For Public Education

Join Us Saturday December 15, 2018 – Grand Park at 10am

Students, parents, educators: Together we raise our voice to make real changes for public schools! LAUSD superintendent Austin Beutner and the school board majority refuse to spend their $1.86 billion in reserves to support our students. Instead, they want to create conditions of austerity to justify their cuts to neighborhood schools.

Join us in demanding that Beutner and the board invest in educating the children of Los Angeles – ALL of them, not some of them!
