The Bernie Sanders campaign keeps getting better as his status as the perpetual runner-up to front runner Joe Biden keeps slipping away. First, he led the way by ensuring his campaign staff was earning a minimum of $15 an hour … by cutting their hours.
Now Bloomberg Law is reporting that the Sanders campaign has been hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers.
BREAKING: Sen. Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign has been hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers. https://t.co/BYEAh696rF
— Bloomberg Law (@BLaw) July 23, 2019
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.
For someone who wants to run the country, Sanders sure seems to have a difficult time keeping his own campaign staff happy.
Please…stop. I can’t take any more of this. https://t.co/BGYHygtHRk

Can’t wait for Bernie to say his staffing policy just hasn’t been properly implemented yet https://t.co/ZNA3ojQmIe

I for one am shocked a communist has his own personal campaign stasi.

People with a burning desire to see a candidate win would work for free. Bernie has to pay his rabble and then they still want to eff him over. Weird how socialism attracts parasites like that.

“A complaint that can be filed by anyone, even by a person not involved in the dispute,” “NLRB has not yet determined if there’s any merit,” seem like important parts…

He he he. They're going after the union employees to find out who went to the media to put pressure on him.
He is literally retaliating against his union employees for using his own tactics from his own playbook, that he's used in every union dispute he's ever been involved in.

If this is what happens to his campaign I'd hate to think of what would happen to the country if he were to become President. Not very progressive.

That's on top of the people who alleged sexual harassment in his campaign in 2016.

Long history in Vt too of unfair treatment of staff. And he ignored violations before. https://t.co/ruNFNMEeuy

But I was told, “He’s the only one who understands the struggle!” The dude is a mess.

I guess he will be the first candidate to have to cross a picket line to get to the debate

D’OH! Steven Crowder spots hilariously ironic proof that Bernie Sanders ‘can’t even realize the socialist utopia in his own campaign’ https://t.co/DhZhTExo6v
