Washington, DC – Larry Willis, president of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), issues this statement:
“Today, as we mourn the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we pause to reflect on the life, career, and legacy of one of the greatest jurists of our time.
“Justice Ginsburg was a pioneer in her field who fought tirelessly for civil, human, women’s, and worker’s rights. She understood the power of the law to transform lives, and used the might of the American legal system as a catalyst for change. Throughout her distinguished career, Justice Ginsburg challenged this country to live up to its full potential, all while defending our Constitution with grace, humility, dignity, and humor.
“Transportation labor is proud to honor Justice Ginsburg’s legacy now, and in the future, as we fight for a more fair and just society, and seek to make change one step at a time.”
