Michael Gregory Olleck, a long time SMART TD member  lost his life on June 10th, 2017 while at work.   Mike enlisted in the United States Marine Corps soon after high school. He then worked for the LIRR for 17 years first as a trackman and then as a track foreman.  He lost his life tragically in an accident while at work.  His union brothers and sisters would like to help his devastated family as much as possible.

According to Anthony Lavoratore, SMART TD Local 29 General Vice President, “Mike was a great man and a good friend. He has helped so many of his fellow members through the years. This is something we would like to do to pay him back for all he has given us through the years.”
