Never Forget - September 11, 2001

On September 11, 2001, more than 3,000 innocent people lost their lives at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Shanksville, PA.

Today, we honor and remember them, and note the  bravery of NYC police and firefighters, who were betrayed by their city with bad radios and died running up the stairs of the World Trade Center to save victims of the attack.

We also salute our ATU and TWU brothers and sisters who acted heroically in the evacuation and the recovery efforts .

Many Transit Workers continue to suffer the effects of the attack and its aftermath.
