Please attend September 12th meeting with your apprentices and comment publicly on how a PLA would impact you and your employees
HIGH THREAT POTENTIAL SAC COUNTY PLA – YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED
When: September 12, 9:30 am
Where: County Administration Center
700 H Street, Board Chambers (Room 1450)
Sacramento, CA 95814
The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will consider a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) on expanding the Sacramento Airport (SMF). This PLA is being revisited after a huge victory was secured for merit shop contractors in 2010 when the county began construction on the new terminal B without a PLA, but the board of supervisors has changed since then. The county recently unveiled a $1.3 billion airport expansion plan, and the building trades want 100% of the work.
If you are a contractor who cares about PLAs or know anyone who does business with Sacramento County or this airport specifically, please attend this meeting with your apprentices and comment publicly on how a PLA would impact you and your employees.
Below are the projects being targeted by this PLA…
· Terminal B Parking Garage--$380 million
· Concourse B Expansion--$250 million
· Ground Transportation Center -- $55 million
· Lindberg Bypass and roadway improvements – $10 million
· Terminal A Expansion and a new Consolidated Rental Car Facility -- $390 million
Over $1 Billion of work is on the table for you and your employees. With your voice, you can make a difference and possibly prevent another local agency from creating discriminatory practices in California.
There are just under three weeks until the meeting; please email Richard Markuson if you can attend.
