ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - The state has rejected a claim by graduate assistants at the University of Minnesota who claimed the school interfered with their attempts to unionize.
 
The grad assistants and the United Auto Workers union filed a claim alleging the university tried to stifle talks about unionization and attempts to organize.
 
Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/KkypjX) reports the Bureau of Mediation Services ruled there was no proof the university interfered with the vote to unionize. The grad assistants vote was 62 percent against a union and 38 percent for it. It's the fifth time the assistants have tried to join a union.
