MacKENZIE SUPPORTS NEW UNION. Democratic 1st District U.S. House candidate Mark MacKenzie has signed on in support of the Campaign Workers Guild, a new union trying to organize election staff in what Bloomberg News calls a possible first for national politics.
The guild has issued an open “sign-on” letter with a series of request requests, including reasonable work hours, fair wages, health care and housing if they relocate to work for a campaign.
MacKenzie, former president of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO, said he signed the letter. He is so far the only candidate for the 1st District seat to do so.
