St. Charles and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are set to count the 22 challenged ballots today, not counted in the Union vote at St. Charles earlier this month. The 500-some service workers at the hospital are voting on whether to unionize. Without the 22 challenged ballots, the Union was approved by 4 votes.
This afternoon, hospital officials, Union reps and the NLRB will officially count these final 22 ballots and we'll see whether the union will be approved. We will have those results as soon as they are available.
