Nancy, you won. However, it really was not a contest. You did not have to prove to everyone in Spokane that you are the biggest labor union basher on the Spokane City Council.
There will be no Wisconsin-style effort to repeal bargaining rights in Spokane. The city council voted 6-1 on a nonbinding resolution stating its support for collective bargaining. Councilman Jon Snyder said he felt it was important to send a signal to its workers that the city respects the bargaining rights because of efforts under way in other communities to change bargaining rules. Councilwoman Nancy McLaughlin (pictured at left) cast the lone vote in opposition. –The Spokesman Review, via the Washington State Labor Council.
