Debate Over Prop A: Should City Ban Project Labor Agreements?

Did Frye really say that posting construction contracts to the internet costs $450,000 a year? I don’t think so. But let’s say it does. Does not having this ban in place relieve them of the openness that posting such agreements to the web gives taxpayers?

Project Labor Agreements have already been shown to raise costs. At: http://www.nusinstitute.org/assets/re... you will find a recent study that looked at California school construction projects built with and without a PLA. The peer reviewed study found that there is a 15% to 18% cost increase when using a PLA.
