Workers on Sanders' 2020 White House campaign join union

16 March 2019

Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign says the Vermont senator has been treated at a walk-in clinic for a minor injury while campaigning in SC. "He received seven stitches and was given a clean bill of health", the Sanders campaign said in a statement.

Workers on Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' campaign have joined a labor union, becoming the first presidential campaign in history to unionize.

Sanders also ran for the presidency in 2016, gathering considerable support, but lost to eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The campaign said that the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 had been chosen by the majority of the bargaining employees to serve as their exclusive representative.

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern condemned the incident and said, "This is one of New Zealand's darkest days ". Bangladesh cricketer Tamim Iqbal labeled the incident as a " frightening " experience on Twitter.

While Sanders' is the first large-scale presidential campaign to unionize, the move comes in the wake of a growing wave of organization within political operations - for candidates and causes - that have for decades been effectively accepted as hard and occasionally unsafe working environments.

UFCW said Sanders' campaign had agreed to use "card check" to determine whether most workers wanted a union.
