If there had to be a war between Senator Bernie Sanders and the unions, and his plan to take away the health insurance plans of union workers made that inevitable, this is, strategically speaking, the best foot forward for unions going on the attack.
1. The Culinary Workers Union is Latino. Any attacks by Sanders proxies crying racism might work against some of the usual unions, but not here. And CWU’s lefty creds are pretty solid too.
2. CWU didn’t go aggressively on the attack. All it did was put out a flyer pointing out that the Sanders plan would deprive their members of their health insurance. Insurance that CWU members had given up pay raises to get. All to end up back on Medicaid.
3. But Sanders and, more importantly, his people have the self-control of deranged Chihuahuas with rabies. So of course the hate and threats began to pour in. Allowing the union to play the victim.
