Fort Wayne City Council

To be delivered to Thomas Smith, Fort Wayne City Council, Thomas Didier, Fort Wayne City Council, Martin Bender, Fort Wayne City Council, Russell Jehl, Fort Wayne City Council, Mitchell Harper, Fort Wayne City Council, and John Crawford, Fort Wayne City Council

Petition Statement

This is to notify you that I am opposed to all three ordinances regarding modifying or eliminating collective bargaining for Fort Wayne City employees.

If this action was truly about the budget, then it should involve a comprehensive plan that examines all city employees from the Mayor all the way down, not just the wages and benefits of union workers.
Using a platform that states that “unions have too much control” is ridiculous, given the fact that the City Council is the final authority in approving contracts with the unionized workers in Fort Wayne.

I do not appreciate the fact that these ordinances were developed and introduced without any notice or opportunity for public input. The members of the City Council are supposed to represent me, the taxpayer, not their personal political interests.

In closing, I am respectfully requesting that you vote “no” on these proposed ordinances.
There are currently 1,777 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The representatives of our Fort Wayne City Council are not listening to the concerns of the local taxpayers and are trying to rush through passing an ordinance to strip public union workers of collective bargaining.
