Local Issue Focus - Child Care Providers Reject Union

On March 1, the results of another significant vote were announced.   Minnesota in-home child care providers overwhelmingly rejected union representation. 

 As Tom Steward wrote in a blog on the Center of the American Experiment website,

 “Despite more than a decade of organizing, card campaigns and expenditures, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 5 garnered 392 votes, compared to 1,014 for providers opposed to the union.”

“This will have a big impact nationally,” said Doug Seaton, a Twin Cities attorney who represents several providers in continuing legal action.  “I think other states will take away from this that if they don’t have it yet, it can be stopped. And if they do have it, there are opportunities to unravel it.”
