Press Room

Senator Bernie Sanders will be speaking to the UE Convention on Monday, August 26 at 11am, at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. The UE convention is not open to the public, and we will be conducting business prior to the Senator's speech, so press will need to get credentials to cover the speech.

To apply for press credentials, please send an email to UE Communications Director Jonathan Kissam at with the following information:

  1. Name, email, and mobile phone number for each member of your party (e.g., reporter, camera person, etc.)
  2. Media outlet you are representing
  3. How much time you think you will need to set up any equipment (e.g., cameras, etc.)

For further questions, or any other media inquiries, please contact UE Communications Director Jonathan Kissam at or (802) 343 1745.
