Sequim sued over delayed decision on two union initiatives
SEQUIM –– Susan Brautigam has filed a lawsuit against the city, saying the council violated state law when it opted to delay a decision on two initiatives.
The initiatives seek to open contract negotiations with municipal employee unions and allow city workers to opt out of union representation.
“It’s clear the city is just looking for a way to sweep this under the rug, but we’re not going to just go away quietly,” Brautigam, a Sequim resident, said in a written statement issued by the Freedom Foundation, a conservative Olympia think tank.
Brautigam’s suit, filed in Clallam County Superior Court on Wednesday, asks the court to order that the initiatives be placed on the Nov. 4 general election ballot or make them city ordinances.
City officials have 20 days to respond. READ MORE HERE>>>
