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: Strip club visit listed among alleged Georgia Tech recruiting violations
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: New Zealand shooter used 5 guns in mosque massacre
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: Federer, Nadal, steam into Indian Wells quarter-finals
