Vallejo City Wide PLA Approved!!!

Posted April 19, 2024

         I would like to thank everyone involved with getting this process completed, from the people that started out phone banking and precinct walking to get to get the city council members elected that voted to negotiate and also approve this historic Project Labor Agreement. Thanks goes out to all of the Napa/Solano Building Trades representatives and their respective Unions as well as the Business Manager for the Building Trades, Danny Bernardini.

Last year we were approved by the city council to negotiate a Vallejo city wide PLA, we started negotiating the agreement last year with the City Manager Mike Malone and his staff which included legal counsel from both sides. Usually, the threshold that triggers the agreement is 1 million dollars or more but in the beginning of negotiations we got the city to agree to a $750,000 or more dollar amount triggering the agreement which is the lowest threshold for any city in the surrounding counties.

On April first we went to the Vallejo City Council special called meeting and presented the negotiated agreement to the council and were approved by a vote of 6-1 (with Mayor Bob Mconnell) being the only no vote.  

Now it’s up to us to show the city of Vallejo the value that Union workers bring! Congratulations to the working class, BIG WIN!
