Home Based Childcare Group Files Lawsuit To Stop Union Vote

Monday, November 28th, 2011 at 1:52 pm

A group of home-based childcare providers has filed a lawsuit in an attempt to block a vote on unionizing the daycare business in Minnesota.

An attorney for the group told the Associated Press that he will file the lawsuit Monday in Ramsey County district court. Ballots are scheduled to go out next week for the vote, ordered by Democratic Governor Mark Dayton.

About 4,300 child-care providers currently eligible for state child-care subsidies are eligible to take part in the vote. Critics say more than 6,000 providers who are ineligible to vote would still be affected by union actions even though they have no voice in the matter.

Those behind this lawsuit maintain the vote ordered by the Governor is unfair and unlawful.
