Willie Hardy Remembers Ron Carey

Willie HardyWillie HardyI would like for the world to know about a true labor leader and a true friend of mine, brother Ron Carey.

I worked with Ron in the Government Affairs Dept of the IBT. I was the second African American to work in that department.

He treated me as a man and with respect. If any of us had a problem, we could go see him and he would take care of it.

I was very sad and sorry to hear of his passing. My heart and blessing go out to his family.

The labor movement has lost a great leader. Thank you Ron for understanding the rank and file. When you spoke to us, it showed that you understood what we went through everyday on the job.

You will be missed.

Willie Hardy, Local 667
