Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States. This weekend, especially in the midst of a pandemic, the officers and staff of the TWU International will take a moment to honor our members who served in the military and the sacrifices they made.
The summer season begins this weekend and states are beginning to reopen. A lot of you will be able to enjoy a three-day weekend, but for many TWU members Memorial Day is a workday just like any other – on the job, as essential workers or assisting other essential workers get to and from their jobs and families safely.
The TWU honors the tens of thousands of union veterans in our ranks. And this weekend, we remember those who gave their lives in service to our nation. We cherish their memories as we revere their sacrifice.
