Home Care Workers Rally For Chance To Vote On Union

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Home care workers rallied at the Capitol Thursday, asking lawmakers to change the law and allow them to vote to form a union.

Personal care attendants and in-home day care operators need the Legislature to give permission for union organizing.

They say a union would negotiate state-paid reimbursements on their behalf.

But opponents told a House Committee that it gives unions too much power over private business operators.

“Our clients are not OK with this, and you should not be OK,” said Lisa Kampfer, the CEO of Consumer Directions, Inc.

A House Committee is expected to vote Thursday night on whether to approve the union ballot.
