Bernie Sanders' campaign team on Friday announced that some of their employees have unionized, a move they labeled as a historic feat.

Sanders also ran for the presidency in 2016, gathering considerable support, but lost to eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 will represent the campaign staffers, according toCNN.

"While political campaigns aren't the easiest work environment, every worker has the right to respect and dignity", Mr. Federici added.

The campaign voluntarily recognized the group, the union said in a statement, after a majority of 44 eligible employees signed union cards.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) maintained his presidential campaign schedule Friday despite receiving seven stitches on his head at a walk-in clinic after what a spokeswoman described as an injury from the edge of a glass shower door. And recently, workers on some campaigns have been pushing to unionize.

"We expect this will mean pay parity and transparency on the campaign, with no gender bias or harassment, and equal treatment for every worker, whether they're in Washington, D.C., Iowa, New Hampshire or anywhere else".

Jonathan Williams, the communications director for UFCW Local 400, said that the first step now that the union has been formed is to negotiate the contract. Sanders apologized to the women who were harassed in January. "Clearly we need a cultural revolution in this country to change workplace attitudes and behavior".
