Congratulations to the workers at Valley View in Houston MN for voting overwhelmingly in favor of their Union UFCW1189! 39(thirty nine) YES votes. 0(zero)NO votes. (three ballots were challenged and remained uncounted as they would not affect the outcome of the election).  Workers stood together to make their workplace better for the workers and for their residents.  Standing together, the members were able to defeat the anti-union campaign waged by their employer.  The Union has filed multiple charges against the facility for violating the workers' rights.
