Oral arguments for city labor ordinance in Supreme Court
ANCHORAGE-Attorneys for the city of Anchorage and city labor unions have asked Alaska Supreme Court justices for a decision by early February on whether a labor law approved last year can be the subject of a public referendum.
Gatti also argues, voters have already put their trust into Assembly members to make decisions.
Public Defender Susan Orlansky says, "the public has proven they are competent to make a decision they support, if they could vote on the issue."
An Early February decision could have the referendum on ballots for the April Municipality elections.
