ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Some child care providers are opposing a bill that would allow those providers who receive state subsidies to vote to become unionized.

GOP Senator Carla Nelson said it will hurt a lot of people.

“This is going to result in higher costs for parents, lower pay for child care providers, and $8 million for union dues,” Nelson said.

Jennifer Parrish runs a day care center in Rochester.

“Our state association, Minnesota Licensed Family Child Care Association, recently conducted a survey and 86 percent of licensed providers said they were opposed to unionization,” Parish said.

Others called it Government over reach, and said it’s not in the best interest of the children.

Those who support the bill said it gives providers more representation, and a voice at the Capitol.
