On Wednesday, September 8, the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District board of trustees will vote on creating an ad hoc committee to consider what kind of Project Labor Agreement the district’s contractors would be required to sign to work on future construction contracts funded by the bond measure approved by district voters in June 2016. This agenda item is a follow-up to an August 25, 2016 presentation to the board about Project Labor Agreements.
The proposed ad hoc committee would meet with representatives of construction trade unions and other supporters of Project Labor Agreements to discuss what the agreement would include. This subcommittee would also meet with community members that oppose Project Labor Agreements, such as the Coalition for Fair Employment in Construction and Associated Builders and Contractors. In addition, this subcommittee would meet jointly with the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to allow the CBOC the opportunity to provide input. The committee would provide its findings and any recommendations to the Board at the November 10, 2016 board meeting, at which time certain board members are expected to push forward with imposing a union monopoly on construction contracts.
