Will Florida Dem Gov Candidates Unionize Their Campaigns?

Over the last few months, Democrat campaigns throughout the country have been unionizing their campaign staffs.

Per the RGA:

Over the last few months, Democrat campaigns throughout the country have been unionizing their campaign staffs.

Now, according to the Miami Herald, Democrat congressional candidate David Richardson has become the first Florida campaign to unionize.

But, none of the current Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidates – Gwen Graham, Philip Levine, Jeff Greene, Andrew Gillum, and Chris King – have yet done the same.

If these candidates want to present themselves as pro-union, then they need to explain to voters why they refuse to put their principles into practice.

The Miami Herald has more details:

Political campaigns are typically high-stress work environments. Staffers often work long hours with little pay for months, and there’s always a chance that the boss won’t win on Election Day.

Workers for state Rep. David Richardson’s congressional campaign are the latest to form a union through the Campaign Workers guild, a new movement for Democratic campaign workers, where employees negotiate contracts that include mandated time off, healthcare, housing, and just cause for firings.

Richardson’s is the first Florida campaign to unionize, other Democratic congressional and gubernatorial campaigns have unionized around the country in recent months.
