Mayoral Veto Threat May Not Be Enough to Avoid Destruction of Collective Bargaining in Fort Wayne

Mayoral Veto Threat May Not Be Enough to Avoid Destruction of Collective Bargaining in Fort Wayne
The fate of collective bargaining for 1,300 union employees in the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana, lies in the hands of the city council after two of its members introduced legislation that would make drastic changes to the current system. Mayor Tom Henry has promised to veto the ordinances if they reach his desk but the council could override that veto with six votes. The current makeup of the council is six Republicans and three Democrats, meaning Republicans could have their way unless there is intra-party opposition.
