WHAT IS THE PROJECT LABOR AGREEMENT?
The PLA is an agreement between the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, the Los Angeles/Orange County Building and Construction Trades Council, its affiliated local unions and the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters that sets the terms and conditions on applicable projects. The PLA is open to both union contractors who are not otherwise signatory to a union. All craft workers covered by the PLA shall be classified in accordance with work per-formed and paid, following the state/Federal Labor Codes, prevailing wage requirements. The PLA promotes opportunities for the local community, through the Local Hire provision and the Workforce Development System.
