On the 16th Anniversary of September 11th

As we near the 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, we should take time to reflect and mourn those we lost in the malicious and cowardly attacks. The attack on our nation and the innocent lives cut short will never be forgotten.

We should also honor and commend the heroes, including LIUNA members, who participated in the 9/11 response and clean-up efforts and later the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and construction of the Flight 93 Memorial.

On behalf of myself, General Secretary-Treasurer Armand E. Sabitoni, and the entire LIUNA General Executive Board, I urge that we continue to honor the memory of those lost on 9/11 and share our deep gratitude with those who responded with such fearlessness and dedication to the devastating attacks.
