STATEMENT FROM RWDSU PRESIDENT STUART APPELBAUM
RWDSU Members in Westchester Worked Tirelessly in Support of Shelley Mayer for State Senate
NEW YORK, NY – Tonight, President Stuart Appelbaum of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) highlighted the work of members in Westchester in support of Shelley Mayer for State Senate, who won her hard-fought campaign tonight. RWDSU members in New York phone banked, door-knocked and canvassed the 37th New York Senate District in support of Shelley Mayer’s campaign this spring.
“Shelley Mayer is a proven advocate for working people. Her years in the New York Assembly have shown that she won’t rest until workers get the justice they deserve – and tonight we congratulate her State Senate campaign win,” said Stuart Appelbaum, President, Retail, Wholesale & Department Store Union (RWDSU). “Shelley stood with members of the RWDSU when A&P went bankrupt. And she has stood with us to improve wages and working conditions time and time again. This is an important victory for Democrats in the State Senate, and I am proud of the work our members did to ensure Shelly was elected tonight.”
