    40,000 Child-Care Providers to Become Union Duespayers to AFSCME and UAW - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    Since the child-care providers are not state employees and do not have bargaining rights, a new state entity, the Michigan Home-Based Child Care Council, was created, with which the new union will negotiate. Top priorities for the first contract include better opportunities for professional development, health care benefits and better pay for the providers, a statement by the two unions said.

    It is clear that the child-care providers were not going to be allowed to run the new union: to elect their own officers, draft their own bylaws or set up their own internal structures. AFSCME and the UAW will divide the 40,000 'members' as they see fit, without regard for the wishes of the child-care workers.
