Vallejo City Wide PLA (Project Labor Agreement) in the works!!


As President of the Napa/Solano Building Trades I am proud to say that at last weeks Vallejo City council meeting we presented and spoke in support of a city wide Project Labor Agreement. The meeting went very well and met almost no opposition except for the unexperienced new representative from the ABC (Association of Building Contractors) which is the non-union entity that opposes all PLA’s. We were approved unanimously to proceed with negotiations and move forward which is an awesome win for the Building Trades and all of our members that we represent. We sold the PLA as an agreement that would bring skilled workers to produce a top quality product under budget and all while employing the members of our community instead of non-union workers coming from other states to do our work and take our Local money back to their respective states and spend it on their economy instead of our workers spending the money right here in our own community. After we finalize negotiations we will bring to a vote at the Vallejo city council meeting. This has all positives attached and should not meet the usual Vallejo opposition that we normally see. The hard work we have been putting in collectively is finally paying off for our members…
