More than 500 service employees have narrowly approved a union at St. Charles. The final contested ballots were counted Wednesday and the union was approved by six votes.  Ken Daniels who has worked at St. Charles for nine years is happy with the results: “We'll I’m pretty excited about it. It’s been a year of hard work for everybody. It’s something that's really needed. It’s giving everyone a voice in the workplace. It will be better for worker and worker and patient care relationships.” Katy Vitcovich, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at St. Charles knew the vote would be close: “Our take all along has been to support the caregivers right to do this. We knew it could go like this. We knew it would be close. Close to 50% didn't want it, slightly more than 50% did. This was going to be a divided house.” Now union and hospital officials will hold negotiating sessions to hammer out a contract.
