Oregon Foster Parent Union Possible
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Senate is considering legislation that would allow foster parents to form a union. Supporters told a Senate committee Wednesday that foster parents have no voice in the Capitol. They say forming a union would allow them to band together and fight for better resources to help them care for children in need of intense support. Foster parents are paid by the state, and the measure would allow them to form a union as public employees and bargain collectively. They would be prohibited from striking. Critics say unions are not the best solution.
