ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Mayor Tom Fink has vetoed two labor ordinances passed last week by the Anchorage Assembly, claiming they threaten his ability to bargain with the unions and that they may be illegal.' One of the ordinances approved a municipal employee relations board decision that clears the way for fire department battalion chiefs' to be represented by the firefighters union. The other changed the 'city law governing labor relations, giving the assembly the right to observe negotiations between unions and the city administration, strengthen' the employee relations board, and ert- ·courage the use of mediation in earlier stages of contract talks. ' The changes were supported by union leaders as strongly as they were opposed by Fink and- the city administration. · Several assembly members last week said the changes should smooth negotiations in the future and give them better information abqut what the administration is doing. Union leaders complained that city negotiators, from previous administrations as.well as Fink's, have not accurately reported to the assembly about.negotiations. In memoranda explaining the vetries, however, -Fink said the changes strengthening the board violate the city charter and that other parts of the. ordinance are ambiguous. He said the new labor procedures could tie his hands as he tries to trim personnel costs. ,, Alaskans Due Settlement in Chrysler Mileage Lawsuit Box Class Set A class on making band boxes will be taught by Elaine Steinbach 7 to 10 chasing individual or family member-' p . m .

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- More than 60 people in Alaska stand to get at least J500 each because of a legal settlement with Chrysler Motors Corp. over unreported mileage accumulated during "overnight evaluation programs," state officials say. Attorney General Grace Berg Schaible said · 48 states and many private action plaintiffs were involved in the. consumer protection lawsuit against Chrysler. They allege that Chrysler temporarily disconnected the odomoters on thousands of new cars and trucks driven by company employees for personal use -- so-called "overnight test drives" or "overnight evaluation programs." The company was accused of selling the vehicles later without disclosing the mileage that had been accumulated while the odomoters were disconnected.'.: '_ ·'"'';··* '·'"'· . ScottK-Daw.kins, a spokesman fprjhe-'. consumer division of the state Attorney General's office, said Tuesday that qualifying Alaskans should be getting their claim forms from a federal court during the next several weeks. "They are advised to study them .carefully before filling them out," Dawkins said. "A mistake could cost them 500 bucks:" · · : To qualify, under the proposed settlement, a consumer must have been the owner on July 31,1987, of .a Chrysler vehicle manufactured before Oct.: 9,' 1986, that was driven prior to; sale in "the overnight evaluation program" and. that originally, was sold as a new vehicle. i ! Alaskans Who believe they have one of .the vehicles -- and who aren't contacted by the courts within the next several weeks -- should contact the nearest attorney general's consumer division office for help, Dawkins said.
