Assemblyman Francisco Moya on Thursday picked up another endorsement in his race for city Council, receiving the nod from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union.

The union earlier this year praised Moya’s support for a bill aimed at bolstering the pay and wage theft protections for car wash workers.

“Francisco Moya stood with our members out on strike at Main Street car wash earlier this year – and now we stand with him as he runs to represent the 21st Council District,” said Stuart Appelbaum, the president of the RWDSU.

“Francisco has been with us through our fight to give a union voice to car wash workers across New York City, and has been a leader in the Assembly in our fight to end the tip-credit – he knows that supporting our immigrant workers is what makes New York City move every day. We know firsthand that he will stand up and protect workers’ rights to organize, have a safe workplace and ensure they can earn a fair wage. The RWDSU is proud to support Francisco on his campaign for City Council and we look forward to continue to work with him.”

Moya is running for the Queens council seat held by Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, who is not seeking re-election. He is in a contested primary against disgraced former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate, who was removed from the Senate following a domestic violence charge in 2009.

“RWDSU has always stood up for the rights of working men and women throughout New York. As an Assemblyman, I have stood with them on the fair work week campaign, ending on call schedules, and most recently to pass my legislation to give carwash workers fair wages,” Moya said. “I am proud to have their support and will continue to lead the fight for low wage and immigrant workers in the City Council with the help of RWDSU.”
