IBEW Supports Sept 11 Victims
Remember the Dead
Support the Living
The IBEW mourns the loss of all those killed in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Our Brotherhood suffered its own losses that tragic day. The most recent report puts the toll at 20 members killed in the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. To the best of our knowledge, 16 of those members were from Local 3 and 4 were from Local 1212. We are relieved to report that no Washington, D.C., area locals seemed to have lost any members in the attack on the Pentagon. We will publish further information as it is received and confirmed.
We wish to express the condolences of the entire Brotherhood to the families of our brothers and sisters who perished. They will never be forgotten, and their deaths will not be in vain. The incredible spirit of solidarity displayed at our recent convention and in the messages of support from IBEW members across North America show that the IBEW family rallies around each other in times of sorrow and crisis.
