Early educators at the Statehouse earlier this month lobbying for collective bargaining rights.
As other states move to
restrict collective bargaining rights, Vermont is considering extending them to early childhood
educators. But child care providers themselves are divided over whether they
want the right to unionize. We'll talk to Cathi Ste. Marie, a registered home
childcare provider in North Troy, and Katie Gonyaw, the director of Ascension
Childcare Inc. in South Burlington, about whether unionizing would enhance the
quality of child care in Vermont.
