Sullivan proposes law to limit city unions' pay increases, power

Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan and two Assembly leaders are introducing a measure Tuesday that would weaken the power of city labor unions.

If approved, the proposal would rewrite city law in a way that takes away the right to strike, curbs pay increases and eliminates raises based solely on longevity or performance bonuses.

Unions would not be allowed to seek binding arbitration to resolve contract disputes, under the proposal. Those disputes would be decided by the Assembly.

Sullivan's plan would also allow "managed competition," in which the city work force competes with the private sector for certain jobs. It would limit union contract terms to three years.

I find if very disturbing that he references Michigan and Wisconsin.

This must be ALECs lower profile union busting.

2. What we need is laws limiting wages of executives

We hear the story over and over, union workers earns too much money, if union members are earning too much money then the executives are way over the wages of union members.
