Posted on 12/21/2011 5:51:32 AM PST by raybbr
Connecticut child care providers will be unionized following a vote announced Tuesday.
The providers voted 1,603-88 to join the union, according to Matt O'Connor, a spokesman for CSEA/SEIU Local 2001. The American Arbitration Association, a neutral group, on Tuesday counted the secret ballots that had been returned through U.S. mail.
O'Connor noted that the union had been trying for six years to organize the providers who care for children in providers' private homes. Nationally, 15 states have similar unions.
Overall, about 96 percent of the Connecticut workers are women, O'Connor said. There are about 4,000 providers, covering all 169 cities and towns. They all participate in the Care 4 Kids program, the state's primary child care subsidy that is managed by the state Department of Social Services.
"We started six years ago, helping to organize them,'' O'Connor said in an interview. "Six years we've been at this. A long, long process.''
He added, "This particular group needed a voice. They care for children of families who qualify for assistance to enable working parents to re-enter the job market or for folks to finish their education.
They're an important part of early education.''

Literally the nanny state.
This is wrong in so many ways.
More proof that “you can’t fix stupid”. The SEIU? ROTFL!
CT further into the socialist abyss ping
This is way more than CT. They pulled this off in Michigan a few years ago and MN is working on it.
The unions have destroyed most of the jobs and the goons now must concentrate on jobs that can’t leave the country.
So these are public employees? Will nannies working for people not on welfare be unionized?
So now, non-union babysitters are at risk of having their legs broken by SEIU thugs?
Future democrat voter pluralities guaranteed...
First they came for our property/money...Yawn...
Then they came for our children...Yawn...
Then they came for our air & water...Yawn...
Now they begin to double down!
Alfred E is alive & well inside every serf...
Unionizing paper boys must be next
As union workers they can bill taxpayers $35/hr for changing diapers.
Bingo! Its a very simple shakedown of taxpayers to fund democratic party coffers. To all you calling this stupid, making fun of unions, etc., you have missed the point. This is smart on their part and it will very effective.
Started with the societal changes put into place by the Marxists in the Sixties to undermine the family with the Women’s Lib movement. They are long-term buy-and-hold investors in the destruction of our nation, and the strategy has been quite effective.
Didn’t Michigan also branch off the unionization dues from child care workers to also taking money from the checks of parents taking care of their own disabled children?
