Staffers for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders reportedly wore union pins to gain access to local culinary workers at Las Vegas hotel restaurants in a vote-getting effort.
Breaking the story on his website, journalist Jon Ralston reported that sources confirmed Sanders “operatives” used the yellow Local 226 pins to enter employee dining halls at Planet Hollywood, The Mirage, The Rio and Paris.
“We can confirm multiple reports of Bernie Sanders’ campaign staffers attempting and gaining access to Employee Dining Rooms at Las Vegas Strip properties where over 57,000 members that we represent work,” said union official Geo Arguello-Kline in a statement.
“We are disappointed and offended. It’s completely inappropriate for any campaign to attempt to mislead Culinary Union members, especially at their place of work.”
In an update, Ralston’s website reported that the situation “has been resolved,” according to Culinary spokeswoman Bethany Khan.
Meanwhile, the Sanders campaign said it was looking into the incident when contacted by Fox News.
“While we do not have the information yet we can certainly say that we would not condone people misrepresenting their identity,” a campaign spokesperson said. “We have the deepest respect for Local 226 and it’s organizational neutrality. But of course we are reaching out to its members about Senator Sanders’ campaign to create a future to believe in.”
