Dayton orders day care union vote; GOP to sue
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday ordered an election to allow child care providers to vote whether they want a union representing them.
Republicans immediately said they will go to court to prevent next month's vote.
Dayton said child care providers who receive state subsidies asked him to unilaterally order union representation to improve their wages and working conditions. However, he said, the American way is to conduct an election.
