STATEMENT FROM RWDSU PRESIDENT STUART APPELBAUM
“At a time when working people continue to struggle, our government and the courts should be supporting stronger unions, not working to undermine them. This decision is nothing more than a thinly-veiled political attack on public unions. Despite this decision, a reinvigorated labor movement will continue to help workers organize and use their constitutionally-guaranteed union voice. Strong unions remain the only way workers can guarantee better jobs and better lives,” said Stuart Appelbaum, President of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU).
