San Miguel County’s jailers and deputies on Wednesday unanimously voted for a union to represent them.
It may well be the first time in the county government’s history that workers have formed a union, officials say.
All 22 employees who took part in the election supported having the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees as their representative in negotiations with county officials.
Twenty-eight were eligible to vote; probationary employees, who have been with the county for less than a year, couldn’t take part.
