Bernie Sanders Cut His Head on Glass Shower Door, Received 7 Stitches

Bernie Sanders Gets Stitches After Cutting Head Goes On With Campaigning

"We can not just support unions with words, we must back it up with actions", Sanders said.

"I'm proud that our campaign is the first presidential campaign to unionize".

Campaign workers for Bernie Sanders' 2020 Democratic campaign have unionized, becoming the first presidential campaign workers in history to do so.

The 77-year-old Vermont senator went to a walk-in clinic "out of precaution", Arianna Jones, a Sanders spokeswoman said in a statement shared on Twitter by a Politico reporter.

"While political campaigns aren't the easiest work environment, every worker has the right to respect and dignity", Mr. Federici added. In card check, union organizers ask workers to sign cards affirming that they support a union.

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. He previously sought the party's nod in 2016 prior to Democrats nominating Hillary Clinton to run in the election ultimately won by Mr. Trump.

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

However, his campaign has recently come under scrutiny for alleged instances of sexual harassment by senior staffers during the 2016 campaign.

The campaign added that employees had chose to unionize through a card check system, in which employees sign authorization slips consenting to being represented by a union.

Negotiations on a contract are expected to begin soon, the union said, and the bargaining unit could ultimately reach 1,000 members. And recently, workers on some campaigns have been pushing to unionize.
