Governor’s statement on decision to not appeal child care union ruling

Governor Mark Dayton today released the following statement on his decision Tuesday not to appeal the Ramsey County District Court decision regarding Executive Order 11-31, which would have allowed home child care providers an opportunity to vote on whether or not to form a union:

“Although I strongly disagree with the Court’s decision, I will not appeal it. I will work toward electing a new legislature, which will support the right of working people to decide for themselves whether or not they want to join a union,” said Dayton.
