Sanders received the endorsement of the American Postal Workers Union Local 44 in Central Iowa. Mike Bates called Sanders a “champion for postal workers. He will fight for postal banking bringing revenue to USPS, to stop the legalized loan sharking of check into cash and payday loans that feed on the working poor. We will have his back in this election. The DMI Area Local 44 of the American Postal Workers Union will do everything we can to elect Bernie Sanders for President."

The endorsement, voted upon by 700+ members this week, is one of more than 130 individual Iowa union worker  endorsements already announced in support of Sanders this cycle.
