A Message From Your Union: We Are Here To Help

Dear RWDSU Local 3 members, We want to make sure you have all the information you need as we go through the shut down of the Bloomingdale's store due to COVID-19, and the furlough of Local 3 members. The New York State Department of Labor has put together a FAQ for workers who need to access government benefits, including but not limited to unemployment insurance. Please click here or on the button below to view the document.     Additionally, the RWDSU has created the COVID-19 Resources Hub, which is being continually updated with the most recent information about COVID-19 and how to get all the benefits you are entitled to. The hub, which is hosted at the RWDSU website www.rwdsu.org, contains information important to Local 3 members and representatives. Visit the hub for information on health and safety during this crisis, aid and resources for affected workers, and the government benefits that are available.

Statement From RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum On Bloomingdale's/Macy's Inc. Furlough Announcement

“RWDSU members at Bloomingdale’s/Macy’s Inc. are covered under a collective bargaining agreement. Two weeks ago we negotiated historic provisions for workers that expire on April 1st. Critically it included plans to negotiate future terms, which we are still doing. Bloomingdale’s/Macy’s Inc. needs to do much more for its employees than what they have announced so far -- and we are pushing them to do that. They will be judged in the future by how they treat their employees now," said Stuart Appelbaum, President of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU).
