REFERENDUM NO. 1
Shall City Ordinance No. 412 (adopted 9/8/1975) entitled “AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF CITY OF SEWARD, ALASKA, REJECTING THE APPLICATION OF THE PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS ACT TO THE CITY OF SEWARD” be repealed?
Currently, the Public Employment Relations Act (“the Act”) does not apply to City of Seward employees. Voting "yes" would repeal the ordinance which exempts the City from the Act. So a "yes" vote would mean that the Act would apply to City Employees, and a "no" vote would keep the current situation.
