TWU Recognized for Our Activism in Supporting Veterans at Annual Dinner

At our annual Veterans Dinner on November 17th, TWU Local 100 was recognized by Assemblyman Peter Abbate and by Brian Maher, Assistant to State Senator William Larkin, both of whom were present at the event, for our rank and file veterans, who dedicated countless hours and trips to Albany to support the Veterans Equality Act. The law, which allows members of public pension systems to buy back up to three years' pension credit for military service, was signed into law by Gov. Cuomo this past June. Kevin Harrington, former VP of RTO and past head of our Veteran's Committee, was congratulated by President John Samuelsen for his efforts. The MTA Honor Guard, composed of Local 100 members, added a flourish to the dinner. TWU veterans enjoyed the speeches as well as the excellent dinner at the Union Hall.
