Fresno City Wide Project Labor Agreement.

Brothers and Sisters:

The recently negotiated City of Fresno Project Labor Agreement goes into effect on January 28th, 2022. This PLA covers all New and Remodel construction on City Owned buildings to include Waste Water Facilities and Fresh Water Stations and all infrastructure projects over 1 million dollars. This PLA should bring work to all of our crafts but especially Industrial Painting. If you are a painter, I would strongly suggest that you seek out CAS certification through the STAR program. If you are a Glazier, I would also strongly suggest that you seek AGMT certification through the STAR program.

The Building Trades has also recently negotiated a Project Labor Agreement with Fresno Unified School District on the Farber Educational Complex. The project has bid and the following Contractors were awarded the project Nelson’s Painting, Bruce Hall Construction, San Joaquin Glass and Don Boam Flooring. Boam is not a signatory employer but will be required to comply with the PLA and use our Members through the CORE language process in the hire procedures of the PLA.

The Fresno Yosemite International PLA Expansion Project is going out to bid in May. I recently attended a meeting with the General Contractor Q&D Construction. DC16 Signatory Glazier Employer AGA has already been selected and is part of the design team. The Painter, Floor Coverer and Drywall Finisher will be apart of the upcoming bid opportunity. All Local Area Signatories have been notified.


The Kern Building Trades has recently negotiated two Private Project Labor Agreements. This means the Contractor performing the work must be signatory to our Master Agreement. The first is a Truck Stop called WattEv this truck stop is being built to serve Electric Trucking Services and will have Eateries, Store, Showers etc.

The second Project will be the new Hard Rock Casino it is a 900-million-dollar Project. There is no ground breaking date as of yet. We will keep you posted. Work in Kern County is only covered by our Glazier Jurisdiction. All other crafts fall under DC36.
