RWDSU Endorses Farah Louis For City Council

Union Highlights Louis’s Work Fighting to Protect the Rights of Workers

(NEW YORK, NY) – Today, President Stuart Appelbaum of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), announced the union’s endorsement of Farah Louis in her Primary Election bid to represent the 45th Councilmanic District in New York City.

“Farah Louis’s career in public advocacy began when she made a critical choice to come from behind a news-camera and take to the school bus drivers’ strike line instead. From that moment on she hasn’t stopped fighting for the rights of working people,” said Stuart Appelbaum, President, Retail, Wholesale & Department Store Union (RWDSU). “Councilmember Louis knows the 45th district inside and out. She knows that smart development of the district with union jobs will ensure that generations of Brooklynites can truly live and work there. We know Farah will stand up and protect workers’ rights to organize and to have safe working conditions. And that she will ensure everyone in the 45th can earn a fair wage. The RWDSU is proud to support Farah on her re-election campaign and we look forward to continue working with her.”

The 45th Councilmanic District includes East Flatbush, Flatbush, Flatlands, Marine Park, and Midwood.
