Brooklyn, NY – Citing her commitment to working people, the Building and Construction Trade Council of Greater New York, Teamsters Joint Council 16, Tenants Political Action Committee, Local 1181 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, and the Mason Tenders District Council of Greater New York & Long Island have endosed Rodneyse Bichotte in her bid to represent the 42nd Assembly District in the New York State Assembly.
"To have the support of unions and advocacy groups who fight each and every day for better working conditions for their members and all New Yorkers is a high honor for me," said Bichotte. "As your Assemblywoman, you can count on me to be a champion for tenants' rights, the preservation of affordable housing, and worker rights to uplift our middle class and every one at every level of our society."
The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York consists of approximately 50 local affiliates of 15 national and international unions representing 100,000 working men and women in the five boroughs of New York City.
"The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York is pleased to endorse District Leader Rodneyse Bichotte in her bid to represent the 42nd Assembly District in the New York State Assembly," said Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building Trades Council of Greater New York. "We are certain that once elected as Assemblywoman, Rodneyse Bichotte will be a staunch champion for fair wages and safe working conditions for all of our members."
"Rodneyse Bichotte is the kind of leader that working Brooklynites need in Albany," said George Miranda, President of Teamsters Joint Council 16. "She will champion the causes of good jobs, affordable housing, and quality schools. Speaking with Rodneyse, and hearing about the lessons she learned growing up in a union household, I know the Teamsters can count on her in the Assembly." Teamsters Joint Council 16 represents 120,000 workers in the New York area who work in a wide range of industries, from sanitation workers and truck drivers, to school safety officers and Central Park carriage drivers.
