Dec. 22, 1987 — Fairbanks Mayor Bill Walley says the city’s unions must agree to pay and benefit cuts if the city is to lobby effectively for state funds and persuade voters to approve new taxes.

Walley’s comments came at the start of Monday’s Fairbanks City Council meeting as he announced the city police employees’ union wanted an ordinance withdrawn that would reduce starting pay for new recruits and reduce wages of police station janitors.

The council withdrew the ordinance without objection.
