Vermont Senate defeats child care unionization bid

The Vermont Senate has beaten back another bid to allow child care workers in the state to unionize for the purpose of negotiating subsidies and working conditions with the state. Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott ruled that an amendment on the issue was not germane to a miscellaneous education bill, and an effort to overrule that decision failed to get the required three-quarters majority. Backers of the unionization effort said they are deeply disappointed, but not giving up. Child care provider Judy Pransky said Scott’s decision effectively labels child care providers as baby sitters, rather than early educators.
