NYC Mayor de Blasio vows to stand with Las Vegas labor unions

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday he’s not decided whether to run for president, but he promised Las Vegas labor union members that he would join them on the picket line.

“We need to demand that elected officials are full partners in organizing,” de Blasio, 57, said during a meeting with Culinary Union members at their downtown Las Vegas headquarters.

It was the Democratic mayor’s latest stop in a series of trips to early presidential primary states, and he told Nevada’s most powerful union that he demanded his party be more progressive. When asked by a union member whether he would return to Las Vegas to help picket Station Casinos, de Blasio said he just needed to know the time and place.
