Minnesota union seeks new look at child care providers ruling

The union seeking to organize in-home child care providers in Minnesota has asked a federal court to reconsider its recent decision that temporarily blocked a union election.

AFSCME Council 5 said Tuesday that it filed a motion to reconsider with the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on behalf of three child care providers.

The court last month granted an injunction putting the election on hold pending a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in a similar case from Illinois.

The Supreme Court announced this week that it would take up that Illinois case, which deals with a dispute over union fees for home health care workers.

Jennifer Munt, spokeswoman for AFSCME Council 5, said the Illinois case "has absolutely no bearing on whether Minnesota child care providers have the right to vote on a union."

AFSCME is continuing its efforts to organize 12,700 in-home providers who offer state-subsidized care.
