The Communications Workers of America's largest local has endorsed Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination for President.
The University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE)-CWA 9119, representing 17,000 employees across the University of California system held member vote and Sanders got 66%.
The union cited Sanders as the candidate for the working class and organized labor as pointed to his decision not to cross a picket line for the December debate in Los Angeles and to speak to a UPTE-CWA 9119 strike action last year.
"I’m honored to receive UPTE-CWA 9119’s support today,” said Sanders in a statement.
