RWDSU Local 108 Endorses Rob Menendez for Re-Election to New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District

 NEWARK, NJ – Today, Charles Hall, Jr., President of Local 108 of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU Local 108), announced the union is endorsing Congressman Rob Menendez for re-election to the House of Representatives. Menendez serves New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District. 

“Local 108 and its members are proud to support Rob Menendez in his re-election campaign. We’ll be out there during the campaign, knocking on doors, canvassing, and working the phones to ensure that this friend of working people continues to represent New Jersey in the House of Representatives,” said Charles Hall, Jr., President of Local 108 of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU). “Rob’s record speaks for itself; he introduced the Working Families Task Force Act, which would establish a federal task force to raise standards for America’s workers, and is an original co-sponsor of the PRO Act, which would balance the playing field and make it easier for workers to organize into unions without employer interference. He’s a proud supporter of unions, union rights, and working families, and we are proud to support him for re-election.”

“I am proud to be endorsed by the hard-working members of RWDSU Local 108 and I will always serve our communities as a pro-union champion,” said Congressman Rob Menendez. “In Washington, we work tirelessly to uplift our residents by creating comprehensive legislation – such as the Working Families Task Force Act and the Parental Workforce Training Act – that tackle top priorities like affordability, housing, childcare, and much more. I strongly support the right to organize and look forward to continuing to work hand-in-hand with our incredible union partners like RWDSU Local 108 in our fight for fair wages, better workplace conditions, and a secure pathway to the American dream for all.”

The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) represents 100,000 members throughout the United States, including 10,000 in New Jersey. The RWDSU is affiliated with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW).
