Anchorage Unions Say Labor Law Ordinance Could Stoke Election Turnout

ANCHORAGE, Alaska On April 2, Anchorage voters will have a chance to make their opinions count at the polls. They'll be able to elect six Assembly members and two School Board members. They'll also make a decision on four bond propositions, two charter amendments and an exchange of municipal parkland. The vote will take place in the wake of the Assembly's passage last Tuesday of Ordinance 37, the new city law that re-structures labor contracts. Gerard Asselin, the treasurer of the Anchorage Police Department Employees Association, says local unions anticipate higher turnout, after some say the Assembly cut off public testimony before its 6-5 vote on Ordinance 37.
