The work we do together!

Brothers and sisters

GREAT NEWS! We have another win for our crafts, and we will continue fighting for our scope of work and getting more projects to be unionized.

Please read the information below

At the most recent meeting of the San Jose City Council, our Project Labor Agreement was renewed for another 5 years. This renewal will bring more than $3 Billion of planned construction into the PLA, through 2028, and will ensure our members are building San Jose.

This renewal is the result of hard work over the last four months, working with the Department of Public Works on amendment language, and negotiating to keep the PLA without changes that would have a negative impact on our members. Our work enabled the PLA to pass on the consent calendar, with no opposition. Thanks go out to the Business Representatives from several affiliates who attended the meeting just in case the item was pulled from consent.

Please take a moment at your next union meeting to talk about the work we all do together as a Council, and how your contributions to this work and our solidarity are responsible for bringing more work opportunities to your members through PLAs. Let them know that the work you do brings outstanding results.
