American Postal Workers Union Executive Board Endorses Bernie Sanders for President

“Politics as usual has not worked. It’s time for a political revolution,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “We should judge candidates not by their political party, not by what they say, not by what we think they stand for, but by what they do. Applying that criterion, Sen. Bernie Sanders stands above all others as a true champion of postal workers and other workers throughout the country.

“He doesn’t just talk the talk. He walks the walk,” he said. “He is a leader in the fight to protect the public Postal Service.”

1. Can't fathom how a union worker wouldn't vote for Bernie.

2. I am in the SEIU and I would not vote for Bernie.

Not in the primary that is. I wouldn't want to start a hair on fire thing about not voting for him in the general. Quite a few of my fellow union members are wing nuts.
By the way, where is the meme that the union bosses don't represent the workers in this endorsement?
