South Dakota Democratic Party staff votes to unionize

The South Dakota Democratic Party staff has voted to unionize.

The SDDP staff unanimously voted to authorize the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union 304A as its collective bargaining representative. The union said in a statement that it was "excited" to welcome the staff into the union and proud that the "young staff of the SDDP has made this historic decision to bring their principles of unity and working class solidarity into the South Dakota Democratic Party."

Will be interesting to see whether this becomes an issue and how it plays out. Largely depend on how militant the union want to become. This has the potential for both sides to shoot themselves in the foot.

The most obvious conflict that might come up is campaign volunteers and 'interns.' But there are so many potential issues that could hinder the campaign.
