Two Big PLA Wins!

Posted April 5, 2024

Union Labor has had some big wins within the last few weeks that will bring more work to the trades. The San Jose City Council unanimously approved a five-year extension to the City of San Jose’s Project Labor Agreement. The renewal of the PLA is estimated to bring more than $3 billion of planned construction to the city through 2028 and ensures that our members will be building San Jose for years to come. Also, the City of Vallejo approved a city-wide PLA with a 6-1 vote. This PLA will guarantee that any city funded project the City of Vallejo valued more than $750,000 will utilize Union labor. These two wins for us should explain the reason why your local politicians and local elections matter. So the next time you hear that our Union is endorsing a City Council candidate or School Board candidate its because we know that they know the importance of what we do and how well we do it!
