Agenda Item 6: The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to approve the concept of Project Labor Agreement (PLA) terms for projects. A PLA is a multi-employer, multi-union pre-hire agreement designed to systematize labor relations at a construction site and promote the training of local workers into sustainable-wage jobs. Used in large-scale projects, a winning bidder for a project agrees to use labor assigned from union halls and agrees to utilize local apprentices, building a local workforce in skilled labor trades. The PLA will define the number or percentage of non-unionized workforce allowed on the project. Staff proposes guidelines on labor and wage conditions, wages and benefits, contract term maintenance, and hiring and training practices.
This item was removed from the agenda and will be heard at a later date.
