Legal actions were started today to halt an in-progress election in which Minnesota child care providers are deciding whether they want a union — and opponents also want the U-S Supreme Court to reverse an election in which personal care attendants chose S-E-I-U as their union. Attorney Doug Seaton says it’s pretty clear that most child care and personal care workers do *not* want a union and it’s being imposed by others for “ulterior purposes.” AFSCME wants to be the union for child care providers but its officials aren’t commenting on the lawsuit. St. Cloud resident Courtney Phillips says a failed lawsuit won’t stop personal care workers from voluntarily joining a union to improve their industry.
