The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, forever changed the course of American history. Union workers were there that day — working in the buildings that were struck, flying on the airplanes that were used as weapons, charging into the chaos in the seconds and minutes after the attacks to save as many lives as possible, conducting rescue and recovery efforts in the hours and days that followed. Members share their stories and memories of that day in the video tributes below.
