Thank you for visiting our new website.

We are currently under construction - here's why:

On August 1, 2017, our union was attacked by a hateful anti-semitic computer hacker. We are working swiftly to ensure his message of hate spreads no further and that our website is restored and our firewalls strengthened. When weapons of hate be they words, images, or physical harm are used to hurt us our union must show the true strength of our values and come together in the face of hate.

Stuart Appelbaum, President
Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union
