RETAIL, WHOLESALE AND DEPARTMENT STORE UNION ENDORSES TIM ALEXANDER FOR CONGRESS
(Atlantic City, New Jersey) – Today, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) endorses Tim Alexander for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District.
The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) represents 100,000 members throughout the United States, including 10,000 members in New Jersey, and for more than 80 years, has fought for the rights of working people across the country.
“As a former union worker and grocery store clerk, I am honored to earn the support of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union,” said Democratic candidate Tim Alexander. “These workers and their families are the backbone of our communities. They heroically continued to work and provide for all of us during the pandemic. Right now, the 2nd district doesn’t have a representative who fights for working people, but together with the RWDSU I know we can change that next November.”
“Local 108 is proud to endorse Tim Alexander because he understands the needs of our members and their families,” said Charles Hall Jr., President RWDSU Local 108. “As a former supermarket worker, with an outstanding record of community service and advocacy, we know that Tim will be a strong voice in Congress for our members.”
“Many Local 262 members have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 health and economic crisis. Our members need representatives in Congress who will stand up for workers’ rights and ensure an equitable recovery from the pandemic,” said Danny Righetti, President RWDSU Local 262. “We know that Tim Alexander will stand up for our members and for this reason and many more Local 262 is proud to endorse his campaign.”
