Sen. Bernie Sanders cut his head on a shower door Friday morning and received seven stitches, his campaign told Politico.

Staffers for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign is now the first-ever major party presidential campaign to unionize, according to a statement released Friday. "On this campaign and when we are in the White House, we are going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder".

The United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400 confirmed that Sanders' campaign workers were the first to win union representation. And recently, workers on some campaigns have been pushing to unionize.

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

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 will represent the campaign workers as Sanders, an independent US senator from Vermont, seeks the 2020 Democratic nomination.

The next step is for the campaign and the union to begin negotiations over a collective bargaining agreement, the union said. "Employees may exercise their right to strike under certain circumstances, as provided by federal labor law".
