What happened to Bernie Sanders’ head in SC?

Bernie Sanders’ staff unionizes in presidential campaign first

Sanders, a progressive who is a staunch supporter of unions, said on Twitter he was "proud that our campaign is the first presidential campaign to unionize".

Mark Federici, president of Local 400, said in a statement he hoped "this breakthrough serves as a model for other presidential campaigns, as well as party committees and candidates for other offices".

Working on political campaigns at any level often involves grueling hours and low pay. And recently, workers on some campaigns have been pushing to unionize.

In the aftermath of 2016, Sanders implemented what he described in January as a robust new reporting structure during his 2018 Senate re-election bid - independent from the campaign - for allegations of sexual harassment and "training for all employees on this issue".

Jeremy Corbyn plans second referendum push only after MPs pass Brexit deal
While MPs at Westminster remain unclear as to what sort of Brexit they favour, there is little doubt about what they don't want. On Thursday, MPs voted to ask the European Union to delay Brexit beyond the current 29 March departure date.

Jonathan Williams, the communications director for UFCW Local 400, said that the first step now that the union has been formed is to negotiate the contract. In card check, union organizers ask workers to sign cards affirming that they support a union.

This time around, following reports of sexual harassment and pay disparities on Sanders' last presidential campaign, there will also be added pressure to fortify safeguards against similar mistreatment.

"While political campaigns aren't the easiest work environment, every worker has the right to respect and dignity", he said. "Employees may exercise their right to strike under certain circumstances, as provided by federal labor law".
