The original location at the union headquarters, 101 Sixth Avenue. Only the two bottom panels are engraved.
Inscription.  
The September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center claimed more than 2,800 lives, including 24 beloved brothers and sisters of Local 32BJ, Service Employees International Union. Those who died, like their fellow union members, strived to build better lives for themselves and their families. On the anniversary of their sacrifice, we pay tribute to them for the grace and dignity they brought to their work, and for their courage in the face of death.
We will remember them always.
