Bernie Sanders Campaign First To Unionize

BERNIE SANDERS' CAMPAIGN HAS DECIDED TO UNIONIZE; CAMPAIGN SAYS THIS IS THE FIRST TIME A MAJOR PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN HAS UNIONIZED

(CNN) – Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is unionizing.

His campaign for the democratic nomination says it’s the first time a major presidential campaign has unionized.

The staff chose “United Food and commercial workers local 400” as their representative.

The campaign manager for the Vermont senator issued a statement, saying, “Bernie Sanders is the most pro-union candidate in the field, he’ll be the most pro-union president in the white house and we’re honored that his campaign will be the first to have a unionized workforce.”

Another campaign could potentially follow in Sanders’ footsteps.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Juli├ín Castro, who’s also running for the Democratic nomination has said he would back his campaign staff if they chose to unionize.
