MONTPELIER, Vermont: A bill that would allow deputy state's attorneys, deputy sheriffs, and staff in those offices to unionize is being looked at by the House General, Housing and Military Affairs Committee.[1]

The committee heard testimony this week on the bill. The head of a group of state's attorneys and sheriffs urged the committee to proceed with caution.[1]

The measure's supporters claim that employees have been shortchanged on pay and need a union to act as a voice in employment negotiations.[1]
