Franson reacts to union election for child care providers
The election will include 2,384 providers who receive Childcare Assistance Program (CCAP) funding. Ballots will be mailed Feb. 8 and must have arrived to the BMS office (not postmarked) by Feb. 29. Franson is a former childcare provider and was recently named chair of the newly-created Select Committee on Affordable Child Care. Childcare providers who do not currently accept CCAP are not eligible to vote in the childcare union. "I hope providers will spread the word and make sure this election is not decided by just a small handful of votes," Franson said. "I urge anyone who notices irregularities or efforts to spread misinformation about the unionization effort to contact my office."
