Interviews: John Crawford and Tim Pape on Collective Bargaining
The Fort Wayne City Council meets again Tuesday to discuss and possibly vote on a series of proposals aimed at limiting collective bargaining for city employees.
Councilmen John Crawford and Russ Jehl introduced the measures earlier this month, citing the high cost of both the collective bargaining process and union employee benefits.
The debate has been heated, and before the council convenes, both sides were given a chance to share their views with WBOI News.
Virginia Alvino sat down with Councilman Crawford on Friday to find out why he decided to introduce the measures.
Meanwhile, Sean Bueter spoke with former councilman Tim Pape, who argued on behalf of Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry against the collective bargaining proposals.
