It is still undecided whether service workers at St. Charles will be unionized.  Wednesday’s vote is still to close to call. The final tally was 255 for and 251 against the union. There are 34 votes that are being challenged because its not clear whether these workers were eligible to vote. Senior Vice President of Human Resources at St. Charles, Katy Vitcovich, isn't surprised by the close vote: “I'm really not that surprised. We've known that both sides were expressing their opinions. I thought it would be close. But this is incredibly close. Each side has 50% on each side.” The hospital and union will meet with the National Labor Relations Board in the next couple weeks to see if both sides can reach consensus on who is eligible to vote. If they can't, the NLRB steps in and makes that determination.
