Bloomberg reports that the July 19 complaint to the National Labor Relations Board, was filed by an unnamed individual in Indiana.
The complaint came as unionized campaign organizers working for Sanders’s presidential campaign fought with management, arguing that the compensation and treatment they are receiving does not meet the standards Sanders espouses on the campaign trail.
The National Labor Relations Board 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.
Back in March the Sanders’ campaign became the first to unionize in a presidential race.
