The Bernie Sanders Presidential Campaign Hit With Unfair Labor Practices Complaint

Bernie Sanders
Oh, this is good.

The socialist Bernie Sanders, who has never seen a government interventionist labor policy that he didn't like, is getting smacked over the head by the National Labor Relations Board.

Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign has been hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers, reports Bloomberg Law.

The July 19 complaint to the NLRB, filed by an unnamed individual in Indiana, was posted to the agency’s website late July 22, according to Bloomberg.

A copy of the charge has not yet been made public, but the agency’s July 22 docket lists five potential violations of the National Labor Relations Act. The charge also alleges that the campaign unlawfully discharged an employee, modified a labor contract, and engaged in illegal discipline.

The charge filing will initiate a preliminary investigation by the labor board’s Indianapolis office to determine if there is merit to the allegations. The board’s lawyers will then decide whether to move the case forward or dismisses it.

Notes Bloomberg, "Sanders has made worker rights a key part of this platform in the race for the Democrat White house nomination."

The complaint comes on the heels of the Sanders campaign workers union, United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400, complaining that field organizers are “making poverty wages” and that “many field staffers are barely managing to survive financially” (See: Bernie Sanders Runs Into Socialist Reality).

  1. I think that the Babylon Bee strategy for the Trump campaign to just shut up and play the Democrat videos is spot on!
