As an early educator of 25 years, I provide care for many families who depend on me to provide a reliable, affordable service. Throughout my service as an early educator I have seen many changes occur that directly impact how I run my business, without any input from me or my colleagues.
I believe forming a union with my fellow providers will allow us the choice to improve upon our profession and the care we provide. The bill does not automatically form a union. Early educators will democratically decide whether they want a union or not, and if so, whether or not they want Vermont Early Educators United to represent them.
I encourage my legislators to support our right to organize as well.
