Mark Dimondstein, America Postal Workers Union (APWU) joins Thom. Although he’s one of labor’s closest allies in the Senate – Bernie Sanders has so far received the backing of just two major unions. But could an endorsement from the Postal Workers Union change all that?
Sysco workers in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania filed for their election last week to vote for Teamster representation – and this is how management reacted.
