• Child care union measure still alive
    April 28,2013

    MONTPELIER — A measure to allow Vermont child care workers to unionize — thought to have died weeks ago in a Senate committee — appears to have been resurrected.

    The Senate Education Committee attached it to a miscellaneous education bill Friday and approved it.

    Sen. Bill Doyle voted against it in the Senate Economic Development Committee, where it appeared to have died last month. He voted in favor of a somewhat different version in the Senate Education Committee, of which he is also a member, and the panel approved it 4-1.
