ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Many connected to a Minnesota push to unionize some home-based day care and health care workers are paying close attention to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The high court was expected to rule Monday in an Illinois case that has similarities to a labor controversy in Minnesota. The case hinges on whether people who don't want to join a union still must pay dues if they're represented by one.
In Minnesota, two unions are in the process of collecting signatures as they attempt to organize operators of home-based day cares and personal care attendants. Some in those professions are fighting it. A lawsuit aiming to stop the union for child care facilities is pending before a federal appeals panel.
