Let’s Build Projects to Last with Local Businesses and Workers. Let’s Get More Value for Our Tax Dollars.
Don’t Let Government-Mandated Project Labor Agreements Stand in the Way of America’s Comeback.
Why Don’t Government-mandated PLAs Work for America?
When Mandated by Governments …
PLAs Deny Quality Construction Industry Jobs to Local Workers.
PLAs exclude 87% of the U.S. construction industry from rebuilding their communities.
PLAs Drive Up Costs for Taxpayers.
PLAs increase construction costs for taxpayers by 12% to 20%.
PLAs Mean Fewer Infrastructure Improvements.
Fewer construction projects means fewer jobs. We must ensure quality work and protect future local infrastructure investments.
PLAs Create a Rigged Bidding Process.
Government-mandated PLAs create a rigged process that steers taxpayer-funded construction contracts to special interests.
PLAs Lack Oversight and Accountability.
We must build top-quality projects designed to last and get more value for our tax dollars.
PLAs Equal Local Wage Theft.
Non-union employees experience a 34% reduction in their paychecks while working on government-mandated PLA projects.
