Should County Ban Project Labor Agreements?

It's ironic how Lorena continually called Eric a liar. One of the Chula Vista Prop.G ads approved by Lorena said that union workers would be "prohibited" from working on projects if the measure passed - a pure lie.

Unions want to PLA's for two reasons, and two reasons only: 1. To ensure union workers are performing the work (political manuevers to gain market share instead of fair competition), and 2. To require all workers to pay union dues paid and require all fringe benefit money goes to union coffers.

Contractors have repeatedly offered unions a PLA (with all the local hiring requirements Lorena argues for), but without those two major provisions. The unions always reject the offer.

This is America where we believe is a free market economy and open competition. Voters in San Diego have agreed with this philosophy, and odds are they will vote in favor of Prop A. It is the right thing to do!
