Home-care workers vote to unionize

August 26, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Thousand of in-home health care providers in Minnesota have voted to unionize.

About 60 percent of the roughly 5,800 care providers taking part in a union election say they support organizing. The results were announced Tuesday by the state Bureau of Mediation Services.

The Service Employees International Union organized the election for workers who care for sick, elderly and disabled patients in their own homes.

Several state-subsidized home care providers had fought to stop the election on constitutional grounds. But a federal judge last week declined to block it.
