Our union remembers #MartinLutherKingJr as a fierce advocate for not just civil rights, but workers' rights as well. He understood how our struggles were connected. (MLK pictured here with @RWDSU Local 3 members in the 60s.) #HappyBirthdayMLK

5 years ago we took action as a City to pass legislation to protect our grocery workers & communities & stabilize the grocery industry. Today, as the COVID pandemic rages, this law is more important than ever to protect our essential workers & those they serve. @Local338 @RWDSU
