PMP,

Should County Ban Project Labor Agreements?

YoungIdealist,
The truth about PLA's is that they do by means of a back door limit the contractors who can bid on a project. What Lorena is not telling you is that on the SDUSD PLA (or PSA or whatever that term of the day is), it is true that both Union and Non-Union contractors can bid on these projects. It is also true that if non-union companies submit a bid, they are only allowed to use two (2) of their own employees before contacting the union to get their employees to put on the job. Well, let me see, if the Union is supplying non-union companies employees, do think they are going to put the good guys out there or the ones that arn't worth anything? Did you also know that idf the union does not have enough manpower to send, the non-union can use their own BUT they have to pay the fringes into the Union for training, vacation, retirement, ... knowing that these employees will NEVER collect a dime, only FREE money for the Union. What a great deal for the union, no wonder they want these PLA's!! How about Fair and open competition for both union and non-union. Isn't that what Prevailing Wage is about? Equal wages & benefits for everyone?

Should County Ban Project Labor Agreements?

A very fair and objective debate clearly showing that the county should enact a ban on PLA's and prevent the horrible situation of the SDUSD PLA from ever occurring again. Lorena continually reverts to name calling and trying to smear Eric's comments while he stayed on topic and discussed only the issues.
