Ed Fitzpatrick – September 20, 1942 – July 5, 2021


It is with the deepest regret and a heavy heart that we announce the death of our long-time President and Business Agent, Ed Fitzpatrick. Fitzy was a legend in the labor movement, a born leader who earned the respect of all, from both sides of the table. More importantly, he was a husband, father, grandfather, mentor, and friend to countless people. His passing marks the end of an era. He will be truly missed.

Please keep Fitz and his family in your prayers. CLICK HERE for the funeral arrangements.

We’re Proven – We’re Union – Hang Tough!
