We are very sad to announce that our brother, Eric Starin, passed away this morning. Let us take a few moments to think about Eric's impact as longtime Chief Shop Steward at WMATA, as Executive Board Member of OPEIU Local 2, and as a lifetime fighter for workers' rights. In addition to all of these roles, Eric was our friend. Eric, we miss you. We'll keep fighting.
OPEIU Local 2 is a labor union supporting over 8,000 professional workers in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We represent staff members across a number of sectors, including healthcare, non-profit, and more.
