Labor lawyers try to rip apart mayor's proposal to rein in unions

Three union lawyers tore into Mayor Dan Sullivan’s proposed rewrite of city labor law Wednesday, calling it ill-defined, drastic and poorly thought out.

The Anchorage Assembly heard from the administration last Friday in support of the rewrite, and invited labor unions to critique the plan in a work session Wednesday at City Hall. The plan goes before the Assembly for public testimony at 6 p.m. Feb. 27 — next Wednesday — and is expected to come up for Assembly discussion and vote on March 12th, Assembly chairman Ernie Hall said.

The proposal takes power from the unions to strike or arbitrate disputes with the city, making the Assembly the final decision-maker. It also sets up ” managed competition,” in which city employees would bid against private contractors for work. And it limits raises to a five-year-average of the consumer price index.
