Sen. Bernie Sanders cut his head on a shower door Friday morning and received seven stitches, his campaign told Politico. "On this campaign and when we are in the White House, we are going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder".
Sanders is now slated to headline another campaign rally Saturday in Nevada. 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. And recently, workers on some campaigns have been pushing to unionize.More news: Nancy Pelosi Boots Mike Pence From His House Office
Sanders, who narrowly lost the 2016 Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton, has been among the leaders in early opinion polls of prospective 2020 Democratic candidates.
UFCW said Sanders' campaign had agreed to use "card check" to determine whether most workers wanted a union.More news: What can Arsenal expect from Napoli in the Europa League quarter-finals?
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. All campaign employees below the rank of deputy director will be represented by the union, which said the number could grow to more than 1,000 members.More news: Thiem into Indian Wells semi-finals as Monfils pulls out
