On October 28th, ballots were counted for 4 more units that had filed to change their exclusive representative to Minnesota Public Employees Association. Those four units were Albert Lea Police Essential Unit, Freeborn County Deputies Unit, Washington County Corrections and Dispatchers Unit, and the Hennepin County Detention Deputies and Tele-communicators Unit. The results were a resounding statement that there is a need for change in the way that traditional Unions operate.
