Sen. Bernie Sanders is picking up another labor endorsement, this time from a union that represents about 1,600 in New Hampshire and Maine.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1837 plans to officially endorse the Democratic presidential candidate today.

“Bernie Sanders has a 35-year record standing shoulder to shoulder with workers and supporting the labor movement,” Local 1837 President Bill Tarallo said in a statement. “He has the best labor record of any presidential candidate in more than a generation.”

The IBEW Local 1837 represents workers at electric utilities and broadcasting stations.
