Alaska Working Families Take on Mayor Who Gutted Workers' Rights

August 20, 2013

A Superior Court judge ruled on Monday against Anchorage, Alaska, Mayor Dan Sullivan who sought to block a proposed referendum to repeal an anti-working families law he signed in March. A coalition of municipal unions and their allies filed the paperwork to launch a petition drive to get the repeal on the ballot, but the city rejected the application.

The unions sued and the court found the city was wrong to conclude that the matter was ineligible for a referendum.

The coalition announced on Twitter that they will begin gathering petitions on Thursday.
