BigGov-BigLabor Thugs ♥ PLAs


Fleecing of workers and taxpayers rivals Davis-Bacon racism
Lancaster County Commissioner Scott Martin wants to ban Project Labor Agreements for Construction Projects in the county. A project labor agreement or PLA requires all contractors, whether they are unionized or not, to subject themselves and their employees to unionization in order to work on a government-funded construction project. This is done by including a union collective bargaining agreement in a public construction project's bid specifications. In order to receive a contract, a contractor must sign the agreement and subject its employees to union control.

"As I see Project Labor Agreements starting to be utilized in other areas of the Commonwealth, I believe it is important that this action be taken to preserve fair and open contracting for government projects, ensure that we attain the most competitive costs for taxpayers and to offer a process that doesn't exclude 85% of the workforce from competing for government projects," stated Commissioner Martin, Chairman, Lancaster County Board of Commissioners.
