Sequim employment measures get signature approval

August 12th, 2014 - 5:13am

(Sequim) The Clallam County Auditor has certified signatures for two measures that would change employment rules for the city of Sequim.

The auditor certified 654 signatures for Proposition 1. 661 signatures were certified for Proposition 2. It takes 400 signatures to validate.

The two local initiatives aim to reform the city's labor policy by making collective bargaining more transparent, and give workers a choice whether or not to join the employees' union as a requirement of working at the city.

The Sequim city council now has about two weeks to approve or reject the ideas. If they approve them, the ordinances will go into effect immediately. If they reject them, the issues will appear on the November general election ballot.
