ATU Local 583 Remembers our fallen heroes today at a time when the entire world is reminded of what these brave women and men have sacrificed. Through their sacrifice, they gave us the precious gift of Freedom; the right to speak freely and the right to associate without fear of prosecution. Their courage is unimaginable to most of us born into freedom and security.
The history of our Local is full of these heroes. They served in the First World War, the Second World War and each war subsequent to that. Still today, we have members that have paid this ultimate sacrifice through the service of their loved ones.
It is a debt we can not repay and we must never forget.
