Porter Hospital union vote questioned

Posted: Updated:
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -

A union vote by nurses at Porter Hospital is being challenged.

During balloting Thursday, the nurses voted 72-to-58 in favor of joining the Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals. But 16 of the votes cast were challenged by one side or the other and were not counted, so the matter will go to the National Labor Relations Board. Union advocates say they are confident the board will uphold the unionizing effort.
