UVM staffers say no to union

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

University of Vermont staffers said no to joining a union.

The choice was to join the NEA or no union at all. Technicians, research and library support staff, and others who earn overtime voted 443-189 to stay nonunion. Other groups on campus, including faculty, are unionized. UVM released a statement saying the 80 percent turnout shows the vote is representative of workers and the school is looking forward to working directly with employees.

The NEA says it's disappointed by the results and is still working to bring more staff into the union.
