Los Angeles, CA- As Los Angeles legislation mandating a $15/hr. minimum wage reaches finalization, the leader of one of the country’s largest union federations has abruptly called for a provision that would exempt unions from the mandate.
“With a collective bargaining agreement, a business owner and the employees negotiate an agreement that works for them both. The agreement allows each party to prioritize what is important to them,” Hicks said.
“This provision gives the parties the option, the freedom, to negotiate that agreement. And that is a good thing.”
