A Message from WECA Industry Partner CFEC to San Diego-Area WECA Members

Friday, May 19, 2023


An invitation from WECA Industry Partner CFEC:

On Wednesday, May 31 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., we will hold our annual CFEC fundraising event at Pacific Rim Mechanical in San Diego.

We will be joined by several elected officials who would like to hear from you, including the person we need to have elected to the County Board of Supervisors! We will also update you on what is going on regarding CEQA abuse (greenmail), Skilled and Trained Workforce, and PLAs.

The PLA threat in San Diego is growing in public and private work. These threats include:

  1. City of San Diego
  2. County of San Diego
  3. Port of San Diego: all work
  4. Community Choice Aggregation: all work
  5. School bonds in the region
  6. Private projects targeted by unions using the CEQA process (we track this here)
  7. MTS: all work
  8. City of La Mesa: all work
  9. Legislation at the California State Capitol dealing with PLAs and Skilled and Trained Workforce

At the event, we will discuss what is being done about all of these and how you can help. We will also update you on three other lawsuits we are involved in to help fight these threats.

Our goal is to match last year's support, which was over $100,000 for these efforts!

Can we count on you?

If so, complete the attached form and send it in today. You can even donate today via credit card here. You can also pass this email and the attached flyer and response form on to others in the industry (suppliers, competitors, and associations) who need to be in this fight!

Please let us know if you can join us, as we have much to discuss (and the food and wine are also pretty good).

Yours in the fight,

Eric Christen

Executive Director

Coalition for Fair Employment in Construction
