        FRANKFORT — Three labor organizations have joined forces in hopes of representing state employees if Gov. Paul Patton signs an executive order allowing state workers to unionize.

        The Kentucky Association of State Employees/American Federation of Teachers is partnering with the United Steelworkers of America and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers to form K-LASER, the Kentucky Labor Alliance for State Employee Rights.
