Graduate student workers at the University of Minnesota again voted against forming a union.The article also contains a graphic with the following information:
About 62 percent of those who voted last week opposed the union, the state Bureau of Mediation Services reported on Monday, adding to a string of failed attempts to organize the students who teach classes and conduct research on the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses.
More than two-thirds of the 4,400 workers who were eligible to cast ballots in the weeklong vote did so.
RECENT VOTES AGAINST UNIONSo again I ask, union supporters, why would people repeatedly and voluntarily reject a union?
1990 No: 67 percent
1999 No: 58 percent
2005 No: 58 percent
2012 No: 62 percent
