AO-37 added on November ballot
The effort to repeal Anchorage’s new labor law will officially be decided on general election day.
The Municipality of Anchorage announced Monday that it reached an agreement with the Alaska Division of Elections to add AO-37 onto the November ballot.
Mayor Dan Sullivan introduced the labor law 18 months ago, saying it makes the contract process more uniform, keeping the city out of bad contracts.
Supporters of the repeal argue AO-37 hampers unions’ abilities to fight for a fair deal for workers. They gathered more than 20,000 signatures to put the law to a vote.
