Governor Mark Dayton is calling for a union vote among daycare workers. He’s issuing an executive order paving the way for the vote. State officials say the vote’s results should be tabulated before Christmas. Republican lawmakers say the order exceeds the governor’s power and plan to challenge its legality.
Dayton will challenge judge's order blocking day care union vote
The challenge comes after the attorney general's office laid out three options for the governor after a judge issued a temporary restraining order blocking a union election. Politics in Minnesota says none of the options would get the election back on track any time soon.
