Bernie Sanders Gets Important Endorsement From Postal Union
The endorsements of unions are necessary and significant. Union endorsements are important because union workers do many tasks in an election cycle like working phone banks, social media, and put boots on the ground. They knock on doors and help bring awareness to a particular candidate.
Having the endorsement of unions creates a solid infrastructure of support for a given candidate. In a time when we have seen operatives like Karl Rove and other conservatives work so hard to destroy workers rights who know by doing so, you ruin this infrastructure that generally support liberal candidates.

These unions members share a gambit of political views. This union[APWU] is very concerned about the future of the postal service. Their members care about having a good working living wage. Under this criterion according to APWU leadership Bernie Sanders stood head and shoulder above any other candidate from any political party.
The APWU made this determination based on Sanders record and his vision moving forward. Bernie Sanders has been a long time fighter for the postal service and wants to expand its service in a new world economy. The foundation of this endorsement is based on Bernie's history of fighting for the Postal Service and other broader issues as well.
One important factoid here is the United States Postal Service is not funded by the American tax dollar. The problems the Postal Service have had are not the result of poor management. The problems have been caused by Congress by this pre-funding of retirement mandates and health care benefits ten years in advance. Bernie Sanders has introduced legislation to get rid of these mandates.
