State’s top court gets emergency motion on SeaTac’s $15/hour wage initiative

Alaska Airlines, Filo Foods, BF Foods and the Washington Restaurant Association have filed a motion asking the state Supreme Court for an emergency review of last week’s Court of Appeals ruling that made it possible for a proposition to increase the minimum wage in SeaTac to be placed on the November ballot.

The companies filed the motion Monday after the Court of Appeals found a King County Superior Court judge had erred when she eliminated signatures supporting Proposition 1, the so-called Good Jobs Initiative, which would increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour at many businesses in SeaTac. The appeals court has not yet released its written opinion giving the legal reasons for the oral decision, made on the deadline to get the initiative on the ballot.

The companies are asking the state high court to hear the matter by Thursday because the ballots will be printed and mailed to voters this week. After that, it will be too late to change the ballots, according to the motion.
