Rebuilding the World Trade Center - The Union Way
We’ve just launched an amazing video that tells the stories of military veterans who got good jobs and careers to be proud of through the building trades’ Helmets to Hardhats initiative. Today they’re rebuilding the World Trade Center, where the final steel beam was placed atop Building 4 yesterday.
This moving video is part of our efforts to showcase the difference the union movement makes in the lives of workers, communities and our nation. We hope you will help us get this out as widely as possible by sharing, tweeting and e-mailing the link to your contacts.
“I had just arrived at my duty station when Sept. 11 happened,” says Lawrence Gotti, Ironworkers Local 40, a U.S. Army Veteran. “Being from New York and going through what I’ve gone through, It’s just an honor—it’s a point of personal pride to be here now working on any part of the World Trade Center.”
