Vermont bill would allow certain state employees to unionize
By Justin Haas
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.
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.
The measure's supporters claim that employees have been shortchanged on pay and need a union to act as a voice in employment negotiations.
