Greater New Orleans AFL-CIO Endorses Landry for District 91 Race
NEW ORLEANS--Mandie Landry, a Democrat candidate for Louisiana state representative in District 91, has received the Greater New Orleans AFL-CIO endorsement for the upcoming October 12 election. Landry strongly believes in unions and feels more New Orleanians could benefit from union representation.
“Unions allow people to organize for fair and better working conditions. They are the reason that we have safer workplaces,” Landry says. “Unfortunately many Louisiana workers don’t have the benefit of a union. Our people deserve better and that means the protections that unions can provide, and the advantage of collective bargaining for increased benefits and pay.”
Landry grew up in a union household, and she knows firsthand what that support can mean for working families.
