Workers on Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign have unionized Bernie Sanders

"I apologize", Sanders said in a statement posted to Twitter.

One of the leading Democratic presidential contenders, Vermont Sen.

Sanders, who is 77, visited a walk-in clinic "out of precaution", in SC after falling and injuring himself on the glass door of a shower, according to campaign spokesperson Arianna Jones.

Well, in keeping with left-wing tradition, it seems the Bernie Sanders campaign has made history. "We can not just support unions with words, we must back it up with actions", the Independent senator tweeted.

The United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400 confirmed that Sanders' campaign workers were the first to win union representation.

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". "And when candidates who claim to support the labor movement practice what they preach, that sends a powerful message that, if elected, they will deliver on their promises to strengthen union rights and level the playing field between workers and employers".

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".

The next step is for the campaign and the union to begin negotiations over a collective bargaining agreement, the union said.
