Judge puts brakes on day care union vote, for now
ST. PAUL -- A Minnesota day care provider vote to join unions is least temporarily on hold.
A judge Monday ordered a stop to an election that was to begin Wednesday. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton last month ordered the vote, which two unions have sought for six years.
Ramsey County District Court Judge Dale Lindman issued a temporary restraining order and said that the proposal should go through the Legislature, not be ordered by a governor.
