Veterans Day 2016

Published 10 Nov, 2016

The Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO joins with millions of grateful Americans in recognizing the sacrifice and commitment of our veterans of the armed forces.

On Veterans Day and every day, we are honored to count among TWU’s members thousands of veterans from all branches of the U.S. military who have protected this great nation. We thank you for your service.

These men and women exemplify the courage, commitment and leadership skills that define the American spirit, and they bring that resolve with them to work every single day.

On the home front, our TWU veterans also serve and protect their union brothers and sisters by being active in the labor movement and in their communities.

TWU’s Veterans Committee, with the full support of the International, works on behalf of their fellow veterans in the community, and in the legislative and political arenas in order to keep the spotlight on veterans’ issues. It is part of our mission in organized labor to help our military brothers and sisters return to a life of dignity and respect on the job. It is a priority for TWU to support veteran’s issues, including increased mental health access, enhanced disability compliance, improved access to job training, and expanded family and caregiver support.

TWU International leadership and the officers of the TWU Veterans Committee thank all veterans for their sacrifice and many contributions to our nation and our union.
