ANCHORAGE — An Anchorage Assembly member is seeking a repeal of a city labor law that limits raises for municipal workers and standardizes benefits across unions.

The Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/19l7bpx) reports Assemblyman Dick Traini (TRAY’-nee) introduced the measure Wednesday and was joined by Assemblymen Bill Starr as a co-sponsor.

Starr voted for the law earlier this year.

Traini says too much effort and money has been spent on the labor law, which union members are attempting to repeal by referendum.

Assemblyman Adam Trombley also voted for the measure but says he’s worn out by how torn apart the city is.

Starr says the broad nature of the law is not the best model.

Mayor Dan Sullivan and two assembly members introduced the bill in February. It passed 6-5.
