Franson releases statement on child care unionization ruling

Representative Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) released the following statement after it was announced last Thursday that a motion for an injunction blocking the child care unionization law was granted by the federal appeals court.

“Today’s ruling from the federal appeals court is the first step to remedy the injustice done by Democrats to the hard working child care providers and parents of Minnesota,” she said.

“As a mom and former child care provider, I know firsthand we don’t need big union bosses increasing costs and creating fewer options for the care of our precious children,” Franson added. “While the legal battle over this law is far from over, I’m happy Minnesota moms and dads and their child care providers can breathe a little easier for now as the threat of forced child care unionization is no longer imminent.”
