It’s very close, in fact too close to call. That’s what Saint Charles Health Systems is saying about the vote for non-professional employees to unionize. “At this point we do not have a decision. We had 251 votes against representation and 255 in favor, but we also had 31 votes that were in the challenge category.” Saitn Charles spokesperson Kaylie Mendenhall says if Saint Charles and the union cannot agree on voter eligibility then a Labor Relations Board hearing will have to be conducted. Hospital officials say they support the workers right to unionize. Some workers say they are concerned that patient care will suffer due to budget cuts, but that's a claim Saint Charles officials deny.
