Watsonville PLA Action Call

Posted February 23, 2024

Glaziers Local 1621, 

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to you with great concern regarding the potential plans of the Watsonville City Council to reconsider the Project Labor Agreement (PLA). The PLA plays a crucial role in safeguarding fair wages, benefits, and safety standards for local construction workers on city-funded projects, ensuring the well-being of our community. 

Scrapping the PLA could have severe consequences, including the loss of hundreds of local jobs, potential exploitation of laborers from outside the community, and compromised construction quality. We must take immediate action to protect our community’s interests. 

To make a difference, I encourage you to participate in the Action Letter Network by using the provided link and QR code to send letters to all members of the Watsonville City Council. Express your concerns about the potential impacts of altering the PLA and emphasize the importance of maintaining fair labor practices, high-quality construction, and local job opportunities. 

Furthermore, please share this critical information with your union members, family, and friends that live in the community. We need a united front to ensure that the City Council understands the significance of preserving the PLA for the benefit of our community. Let’s stand together and send a clear message that Watsonville values its workers, community, and commitment to responsible development. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Action Letter Network Link: [https://bit.ly/3T4TIRA]
